- They have their own schools and some rarely leave their neighbourhoods
- Isolated Muslims see UK as mainly Islamic when it is less than five per cent
Muslims in some parts of the country are so cut off from the rest of society that they believe the majority of Britons share their faith, according to a shock new report.
The major review by the Government’s integration tsar Dame Louise Casey has found that thousands of Muslims live in enclaves with their own housing estates, schools and television channels.
Some rarely, if ever, leave their neighbourhoods, and believe that Britain is a Muslim country in which up to three-quarters of the population follow Islam, according to sources who have seen the report.
However, figures from the 2011 Census put the actual proportion of Muslims in England and Wales at under five per cent, while Christians account for nearly 60 per cent.
The new review says Muslim enclaves are concentrated in northern areas such as Bradford, Dewsbury and Blackburn, according to reports in The Sunday Times.
The newspaper quotes sources saying the report will send ‘shock waves’ through the system by attacking the Government, and particularly the Home Office, for failing to manage the consequences of mass migration and promote integration.
It said the report will criticise the police for ‘pandering’ to ethnic minorities and say some institutions are so politically correct that they are playing into the hands of the far Right.
Dame Louise reportedly had her review delayed by the Home Office because of concerns over its critical tone.
One insider said it was going to prove ‘quite hard reading for some people’.
Downing Street declined to comment last night.
