Anti-Muslim bigotry which is absolutely rife (even celebrated) in Western society is at the root cause of this atrocity. Remember, not so long ago, Tory Britain's in-house magazine, the Spectator, published an article from vile bigot Rod Liddle who complained about there being "not enough" Islamophobia in Britain. In the midst of this bogus anti-Semitism smear against Jeremy Corbyn, this call to hatred went practically without censure. That's how normalised hate-crime is against the Muslim population of Britain. And for Britain, read America, or Australia or Canada - basically any part of the Anglosphere where Britain's horrid colonial white supremacist roots are still deeply embedded.
