Deenphobia is the term coined by yours truly just a few minutes back to represent the disdain, fear, hatred, lack of regard and respect of Islam among Muslims themselves. This feeling arises out the observation of the power, affluence and  prosperity and influence present in the non-Muslim societies particularly the west. It manifests itself in various attitudes towards religious Muslims in particular but Muslims in general. In the former case it will manifest in the attitude when a person asserts or implies that Madarsa people are either backward, or illiterate or regressive or unsophisticated. In latter case is common among the so called progressive people for whom the Muslim tag is a burden. Deenphobia is a malady of Muslim society and it is mandatory for every Muslim to make efforts to eradicate it.
