One in 10 Muslims ‘ignore terror’


 Almost one in 10 British Muslims would not inform police if they suspected that someone of the same faith was involved in a terror attack, a poll suggested. The ICM poll for the News of the World found 9% of the 502 questioned would not tell police if they had such suspicions about a fellow Muslim. With a Muslim population aged over 16 in Britain of around one million, that would translate to 90,000 “turning a blind eye”, the newspaper said.However, almost nine out of every 10 (86%) would contact police, according to the survey. Among young Muslims, the figures for keeping quiet were higher with 15% of 16 to 24-year-olds saying they would not tell police and 81% saying they would.
