[date]

To whom this may concern,

I am writing to report a racist incident that occured on [date] at [name location].

[Briefly describe incident]

[Briefly decribe how you were made to feel]

Given that this occured in a Muslim context, I would like to bring your awareness to a forgotten sunnah in our religion: that of racial equity. The prophet [pbuh] said in his last sermon that:

“All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over a white – except by piety and good action” 

The incident that occorred at [name location] is unacceptable in our religion and in light of this I am asking that you investigate and change the policy within [name organisation] so this incident does not occur again.

[date]

To whom this may concern,

I am writing to report a racist incident that occured on [date] at [name location in MP’s constituency].

[Briefly describe incident]

[Briefly decribe how you were made to feel]

This is unacceptable and repeat incidents should be met with firm ramifications within your constituency. I am appalled that this incident occurred and I urge you to investigate and adopt appropriate measures to ensure that such an incident does not happen again.
