Britons are suspicious towards Muslims

The British public are concerned at the rise of Islam in Britain, according to a major survey. More than half the population would be strongly opposed to a mosque being built in their neighborhood, the study found. A large proportion of the country believes that the multicultural experiment has failed, with 52% considering that Britain is deeply divided along religious lines and 45% saying that religious diversity has had a negative impact. Only a quarter of Britons feel positive towards Muslims, while more than a third report feeling “cool” towards them. The findings, to be published in the respected British Social Attitudes Survey, show that far greater opposition to Islam than to any other faith and reveal that most people are willing to limit freedom of speech in an attempt to silence religious extremists.
