Britain's Muslim Students Shun Liberalism

London: Some 32 per cent of British Muslim students believe that killing in the name of Islam is justified, according to a poll by YouGov, a British polling agency.

The study, commissioned by the Centre for Social Cohesion, further indicated that 40 per cent of Muslim students agree with the introduction of Islamic law (Sharia) in Britain.

One-third of respondents said that it favoured a worldwide Islamic caliphate and 54 per cent supported the idea of a Muslim political party in the British Parliament.

According to the poll, a quarter of Muslim students believed that men and women are not equal in the eyes of Allah, while 25 per cent said they would have little or no respect for homosexuals.

"These results are deeply disturbing," said Hannah Stuart, co-author of the report. "These students are the future leaders of their communities. However, a significant number of them appear to support beliefs that go against the liberal democratic values," she concluded.
