1990 Trust surveys Muslim views

Britain’s foreign policy is marginalising Muslims, a new survey by The 1990 Trust has found. This new survey (sample: 1,213) reinforces that there is almost no support for terrorism amongst the Muslim community. Just 1% of those surveyed supported the 7/7 London bombings.

Many mainstream polls have shown higher rates of support for extremism. The difference is explained by the way questions are phrased. The 1990 Trust believe their new survey reflects the real views of Muslims, and that other polls have attempted to generate headlines claiming more support for terrorism than is actually the case.
