MUSLIMS PLAY A SIGNIFICANT PART IN INCREASING DIVERSITY OF BRITAIN

Muslim World

Welcoming the Census 2011 results, the Muslim Council of Britain on 11 December commented that the growth in number points to the fact that Muslims play a significant part in the increasing diversity of Britain. The population of Muslims in England and Wales is now 2.71 million, of a total of 56.1 million – around 4.8% of the population

In the last decade there have been significant increases in the Muslim populations in Manchester (over 100,000), Birmingham (plus 96,000), Bradford (plus 55,000) and most of the inner London boroughs, notably Newham (plus 64,000), Tower Hamlets (plus 58,000) and Haringey (plus 52,000). Tower Hamlets remains the local authority district with the greatest proportion of Muslims - 34.5%; in 2001 this percentage was 36.4, possibly an indication of outwards migration. Comparison with the 2001 Census indicates that the populations of all minority faith communities have increased – for example the Hindu and Buddhist communities rose by 48% and 70% respectively.
