The parliament’s cross-party group on tackling the problem has teamed up with Newcastle University to assess its nature, extent and impact on children, young people and families.
It will also look at the role of traditional and social media, the public sector and politicians, and at what steps can be taken to challenge and overcome anti-Mulsim bigotry.
Mr Sarwar said: “I am delighted that the CPG is launching the first ever public inquiry into Islamophobia in Scotland. We have established that Scotland is not immune from Islamophobia and anti-Muslim hatred.
“The fight against hate is a fight for all of us; and working together we can build a Scotland free of Islamophobia and all forms of prejudice.”
