In an unprecedented venture, Sky News commissioned an opinion poll by Survation into what Muslims and non-Muslims think about a range of issues including radicalisation, security concerns, political uncertainty, a rise in hate crimes and growing prejudice.
We asked 1,000 Muslims and 1,000 non-Muslims to share their opinions and found that, while most Muslims saw their religion as being in step with British values, 16% did not.
The results showed that younger Muslims were more likely to see their values aligned to those of Britain, with 73% of those aged 18 to 34 agreeing, compared to 71% of those aged over 55. Male Muslims were also more likely to agree – with 78% versus the female figure of 64%. …..mor news.sky
