Muslims – burden on Britain

Posted by The Mindset on January 12, 2013

Wherever Muslims go they bring poverty, theft, backwardness,illiteracy and crime.

Here are some facts on Muslims in UK:


People with Muslim backgrounds are most concentrated in London (38% of the total UK Muslim population) and other large urban areas, including the West Midlands (14% of the Muslim population), the North West (13%), and Yorkshire and the Humber (12%). Within these areas, Muslims are highly concentrated spatially. Muslims make up 8% of the population of London overall, but 36% of the Tower Hamlets area and 24% of the Newham area population.
More than half of Muslim adults living in England and Wales in 2001 said their religion was important to their self-identity.
Muslims households were the least likely to be homeowners (52%) and are the most likely among all religious groups to be living in accommodation rented from the council or housing association (28%); 4% live rent-free.
32% of Muslim households live in overcrowded accommodation. Average family size for a Muslim family is 3.8, which can contribute to overcrowding. 34% of Muslim households contained more than five people. 63% contained at least one dependent child, and 25% contained three or more dependent children.
Unemployment rates were higher for Muslims than any other religion, for both men and women. Muslim male unemployment rate was 13% in 2004, and for women it was 18%.
Muslims between the ages of 16 and 24 had the highest unemployment rates at 28%; 11% of Muslims over the age of 25 were unemployed.
Muslims were most likely to be unavailable or not actively seeking work due to reasons such as disability, being a student, or looking after the family and home. 31% of working-age men were economically inactive, as were 69% of working-age women.
With 34% of Muslims under the age of 16 in 2001, Muslims have the youngest age profile of all the religious groups in Great Britain. Less than one in ten were aged 65 or older.
74% of Muslims are from an Asian ethnic background (Pakistani – 43%, Bangladeshi – 16%, Indian – 8%, Other Asian – 6%), Almost 1.2 million Asian Muslims were living in Great Britain in 2001. Another 11% were from a White ethnic background, including 4% of White British origin and 7% from another White background (including Turkish, Cypriot, Arab and Eastern European). 6% of Muslims were of Black African origin, mainly from North and West Africa.
Muslims, both male and female, had the highest rates of reported ill health in 2000. Age-standardized rates of “not good” health were 13% for Muslim males and 16% for Muslim females.
Muslims had the highest rates of disability, with 24% of females and 21% of males claiming a disability.
33% of working-age Muslims in Great Britain had no qualifications in 2004, which is the highest rate of any religious group. At 12%, they were also the least likely to have degrees or equivalent qualifications.
The Government estimates the number of mosques in the UK to be around 1,000.
According to a poll of 600 Muslim and 800 non-Muslim students at thirty universities throughout the UK conducted by the Centre for Social Cohesion (CSC), as reported ref B, 32 percent of Muslims on UK campuses believe killing in the name of religion is justified, 54 percent wanted a Muslim Party to represent their world view in Parliament, and 40 percent want Muslims in the UK to be under Sharia law. Only 2 percent of non-Muslims felt killing in the name of religion could be justified and none believed it was acceptable for Muslims in the UK to have a religious-based party, or to be under Sharia law. 73 percent of Muslim students are at least occasional participants in Friday services while only 2 percent of non-Muslim students attend any religious service. The poll results also found that 73 percent of Muslim students believe it is possible to be both Muslim and British and a similar number believe their parents are “much more or somewhat more” strict Muslims than they are. In addition only six percent believed that people who leave Islam for another religion should be “punished according to Sharia law” (killed).
