Anti-Islam Bigotry Claim: New Poll On Community Relations

A UK public opinion poll powered by global market intelligence solutions provider GMI (Global Market Insite, Inc.) on behalf of the Institute of Governance, Queen’s University, Belfast/Institute of Irish Studies, University of Liverpool, and Muslim Voice UK, explores the detail of difference, agreement and shared concerns amongst UK Muslim and non-Muslim citizens. UK Muslims blame Islamophobia on the portrayal of their religion in the media, the survey revealed. The research found 40 per cent of Muslims blamed anti-Islamic feelings on the media, while almost three-quarters of non-Muslims blamed the September 11 bombings.
