A University of Birmingham survey has found that British people from middle and upper-class occupational groups are more likely to hold prejudiced views of Islam.
The survey was conducted in conjunction with YouGov.
It found 23.2% of people from Britian’s higher social class were prejudiced against Islam compared with 18.4% of people from lower economic and social status.
Older men of all classes had more negative views about Muslims over other ethnic or religious groups.
The survey was presented in a report titled “The Dinner Table Prejudice: Islamophobia in Contemporary Britain.”
It polled over 1600 people last July.
