British Poll: Third of Muslim Students Supported the Creation of a World-wide Caliphate or Islamic State

From The Sunday Times, July 27, 2008:

A third of Muslim students back killings
Radicalism and support for sharia is strong in British universities
by Abul Taher


ALMOST a third of British Muslim students believe killing in the name of Islam can be justified, according to a poll.

The study also found that two in five Muslims at university support the incorporation of Islamic sharia codes into British law.

The YouGov poll for the Centre for Social Cohesion (CSC) will raise concerns about the extent of campus radicalism. “Significant numbers appear to hold beliefs which contravene democratic values,” said Han-nah Stuart, one of the report’s authors. “These results are deeply embarrassing for those who have said there is no extremism in British universities.”


The researchers found that 55% of nonMuslim students thought Islam was incompatible with democracy. Nearly one in 10 had “little respect” for Muslims.


The research found that a third of Muslim students supported the creation of a world-wide caliphate or Islamic state.


A report by Policy Exchange last year found that 37% of all Muslims aged 16-24 would prefer to live under a sharia system.
