Muslims have more pride in London

Compared to non-Muslims, according to a Mori poll commissioned by London Mayor Ken Livingston:

Muslims in London feel more pride and sense of identity with their local area than the rest of the general public, according to a survey published today.

[…] Non-Muslims were unenthusiastic about diversity, with only 38% saying it was important to have regular events celebrating London’s different ethnic and religious communities. The figure from Muslim respondents was higher, at 57%. There were differences too when people were asked about faith, with 95% of Muslims thinking everyone should be free to practise their religion openly, compared to 86% of the non-Muslims interviewed.
