British Muslims are concerned about Islamist extremism and do trust the police, survey finds

The majority of British Muslims are concerned about Islamist extremism and support police along with the principles of the controversial Prevent program, a survey has suggested.

Crest Advisory, an independent crime consultancy, commissioned representative surveys of 1,000 Muslims and 1,000 other adults.

It found that 63 per cent of British Muslims were worried about Islamist extremism and 64 per cent trusted the police - slightly less than the general population.

When asked about the government’s Prevent counter extremism program, which is being reviewed following years of discrimination allegations, 55 per cent of Muslim respondents had not heard of it. When asked if they supported the principle of a scheme that is “mostly aimed at Muslim communities at risk of being drawn into Islamist extremism, because police and security services assess that that is currently the biggest single terror threat”, the majority said they did.
