BBC reports that a new British study on discrimination finds that 15% of young British adults don't trust Jews, while 60% feel that Muslims have a negative image in the public forum.

The Comres survey of 1,001 British people aged 18 - 24 was conducted online in June, and asked respondents questions based on age, location, education and income.

12% of respondents said they didn't trust Christians, 13% felt the same about Buddhists, 16% about Sikhs or Hindus, while 27% felt Muslims are untrustworthy.

Other findings from the survey showed that there has been a 61% rise in anti-Muslim crime in London over the past year alone. The Muslim Council of Britain (MCB) reported that there has been an 'unprecedented escalation of violence' against Muslims since the killing of Fusilier Lee Rigby in May.

"These findings indicate that we need to ensure young people are mixing at local levels and that they’re working on projects together so that people can get to know Muslims and vice versa," said Akeela Ahmed, a representative of the Cross-government Working Group of Anti-Muslim Hatred.

"Every survey that I have run, and surveys run by my academic colleagues, makes it quite clear that a significant proportion of the British population hold negative views of Islam, and by extension British Muslim communities," added Professor Matthew Goodwin, another member of the group.
