The analysis by the University of Birmingham and data analysis firm YouGoV discovered the 25.9% of British public harbor discriminatory and negative views against Muslims, only surpassed by gypsies and Irish Travelers (44.6%). Such results showed how pervasive Islamophobia is in UK, British Muslim Council General-Secretary Zara Mohammed said.

The research also found that non-Muslim British public is three times more likely to hold prejudiced views of Islam than they are of other faiths.

36.3% of people surveyed agreed that Islam threatens the British way of life, with 57.3% saying they support the Conservative Party and Brexit.

The study, however, found that people from middle and upper-class occupational groups are also more likely to hold prejudiced views against Muslims and Islamic beliefs. People from higher social groups are 4.8% more likely to view Islam as “literalistic,” without interpretation, than other lower social groups.

The publication of the report comes shortly after accusations were leveled against the Tory party after Muslim minister Nusrat Ghani was sacked due to her “Muslimness” making other ministers uncomfortable.
