I think the truth is probably "surveying Muslims in proportion to the number of them in an area is a logical and sensible way in which to establish their feelings".However, the Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) said it ‘did not recognise’ Mr Phillips’ analysis, which was based on a Channel 4 poll for a documentary tomorrow night.
It also questioned the decision to survey some of the most deprived neighbourhoods in the UK with a disproportionately high number of people with a Pakistani or Bangladeshi ethnicity.
It comes amid fears of a divide in society. Pictured is a muslim woman in a niqab selling ice cream to a child in Dewsbury (file picture)
‘Choosing specifically to poll in areas that are poor and more religiously conservative, skews the results and makes it indicative of these areas and not of British Muslims nationally,’ the MCB said.
Interesting, but what a pity it doesn't include Western Europe or the Americas. Particularly the latter, where Muslims will be most distant from the origin and traditions of Islam. I.e. for (or should that be from?) whom there might be more hope.HerbM wrote:This may also be useful:
