A national poll of Britons has found that the media industry is seen as most to blame for ‘fear of Islam’.
Muslims abroad and far-right parties such as the BNP and EDL come a joint distant second in the poll by Comres.
They were asked: “Which one of the following groups, if any, do you think is most to blame for Islamophobia, fear of Islam, in the UK?”
29% of Britons blamed the media. 14% blamed Muslims abroad and 13% blamed far-right parties.
Just 11% blamed Muslims in the UK for ‘Islamophobia’, with politicians getting the same amount of blame at 10%.
Around 1% agreed with the statement: “I do not think that Islamophobia exists in the UK”. They’re the ones who spend most of their time trolling websites.
Another question by ComRes asked whether people thought the Qur’an justified use of violence against non-Muslims.
Around 14% thought it did, while around 65% disagreed.
