The Prevent Strategy is one of the vast arrays of counterterrorism policy-related plans adopted byBritain, towards addressing the risk of terrorism in the country and in fostering the international fight against terror. The program was approved and adopted in 2003 and spearheaded by the NewLabor administration led by Tony Blair, in many ways, because of the terrorist attacks that happened across the world during previous years (HM Government, 2015). In the beginning, the Prevent program played a limited role as compared to other preventive measures adopted. Still, after the Landon attacks in July 2005, the government realized the importance of such a program and improved its significance. At the core of the Prevent program are the objectives of countering terrorism and the related ideologies, preventing the recruitment of more people into terrorism, and working in collaboration with the agencies that face the risks of radicalization (HM Government, 2011).

The threat of terrorism affects every aspect of the lives of the Muslims living or visiting the UK, including circles such as colleges and schools, mosques, and public spaces. Towards uncovering the challenge of Islamophobia in Britain's approach to addressing the problem of terrorism, particularly in the case of the Prevent program, the government has instituted crucial measures (Sayyid, 2010). The focus on the issue of islamophobia has helped increase the awareness of the
