Bedfordshire Police deletes tweets using 'Islamic state-style' logo
Bedfordshire police has deleted tweets about Islamophobia Awareness Month after users pointed out its logo was similar to a hand gesture popular popular with Islamic militants.
The logo features a fist with the index finger pointing upwards, a gesture apparently favoured by followers of IS in propaganda photographs.
Islamophobia Awareness Month is run by organisation Muslim Engagement and Development (Mend).
The force initially tweeted its support for the campaign using the logo, before removing the posts today. A spokesman for MEND said it was 'surprised' Bedfordshire Police decided to stop using the logo.
