Encountering anti-religious hate speech online can be a stressful and painful experience. There are times when you will not want to challenge the person or organisation spreading the hatred and will want to simply report them. Here are some suggestions on how to do that. Regulatory bodies In most countries, there is some form of media regulatory body you can complain to (for example, IPSO (Independent Press Standards Organisation) in the UK). Large and more responsible media companies, like the BBC, will also have their own complaints systems and policies. Social media networks Most social media networks have rules that ban hate speech. You can find them in Facebook’s community standards, Twitter’s rules section and Instagram’s community guidelines.
