Irrational fear of and prejudice against Islam and its adherents, which is known as Islamophobia, occurs in several western countries. This issue has been debated since the aftermath of violent incidents such as the 9/11 attacks in 2001, the Afghanistan war in 2002, the Iraq war in 2003, the Danish cartoon row in 2005, the London bombings in 2005, the Paris attacks in 2015, and the New Zealand shootings in 2017. In reporting terrorism, the media tend to construct a negative image of Islam using biased language. This kind of portrayal is one of the significant sources of Islamophobia. Consequently, Islamophobia appears to be reproduced through non-western media. This assume
issue has raised the question of whether newspapers in Muslim-majority nations the responsibility of disseminating objective, balanced and fair news about Islam. Hence, this book explores how Islamophobia is reproduced in selected Malaysian newspapers from agenda-setting perspectives.
