LONDON: Muslims are most discriminated against in Britain, according to a report on Islamophobia published by the University of Birmingham and data analytics company Yugov.

Stephen H also said that prejudice against Islam and Muslims is prominent in Britain. The biggest victims of racism are Muslims, and those with anti-Muslim views are mostly educated and wealthy Britons.
