Muslims in Wales are getting so accustomed to anti-Muslim behaviour they're practically becoming immune to it.
That's the warning from one of the country's leading equality charities.
Race Equality First says verbal and physical attacks have been happening for years, but in the last few months they've become more frequent.
ITV Cymru Wales has spoken to one Muslim in Cardiff who says she is terrified after receiving verbal and physical abuse.
According to experts, most of the anti-Muslim behaviour is being directed at women due to their religious dresses and veils making their faith more visible.
It's believed that recent headlines surrounding the radicalisation of Muslims in Cardiff may be the reason behind the increase in racial abuse.
There's a warning that anti-Muslim abuse could help create an environment that encourages radicalisation within a handful of impressionable and vulnerable people.
Now projects such as the Hate Crime and Advocacy Project are aiming to educate the communities in Wales to have a greater understanding and tolerance of different cultures and religions.
