According to TRT, a recent survey performed in the United Kingdom found that seven out of ten Muslims employed in the country have experienced at least some type of Islamophobic behaviour at work.

The study was conducted by Hyphen, a new online newspaper that focuses on issues that are relevant to Muslims in the UK and Europe.

Between April 22 and May 10, a total of 1,503 British Muslims were interviewed as part of the poll. The demographic data obtained comprised the respondents’ age, gender, ethnicity, and geographic location.

Anti-Muslim confrontations were more common among black Muslims than among other Muslims, according to the research. For example, whereas 37% of Muslims said they were discriminated against during recruiting, 58 percent of black Muslims said they were.

Muslims encountered the highest discrimination at work, with 42% reporting anti-Muslim discrimination at work events and 40% reporting barriers to professional advancement and promotions.

However, the majority of persons were found to be optimistic. Despite the growth in Islamophobia, more than half of those polled indicated their lives had improved overall in the last five years. They also believed that, in comparison to the past, Muslims in the UK were better accepted.
