The list includes followers of different religions

Launched in London a new database to help counter extremism.

The Extremism Monitoring and Analysis Network aims to counter “hate speech and extremist ideologies by identifying extremist individuals and organizations of all religions.”

The database, which currently contains 150 names, includes far-right extremists, anti-Semitic tweeters and a hard-line interpretation of Islam. Included beside each individual on the list are acts and words of hate that have drawn attention to the individual concerned.

And on the list is a former BBC presenter, Kitty Hopkins, because of her statements that discredit Muslims. It also includes Buddhists from Sri Lanka and Burma.
