8.1%
A 2017 Pew Research report documents Muslim population at 8.1% of the total population of Sweden of 10 million (approximately 810,000).


4.4%
Islam is the second largest religion in the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, with results from the United Kingdom 2011 Census giving the UK Muslim population in 2011 as 2,516,000, 4.4% of the total population.

Official ONS figures for 2018/19 that were released in December show that there are 3,194,791 Muslims living in England, with over a third aged under 16. English Muslims make up the vast majority of the 3,363,210 currently living in England, Scotland and Wales.4 Jan 2020

They tend to cluster. There are more Eastern  Europeans in my neck of the woods than what I'd guess to be Muslims.

My OH's cardiothoracic consultant I consider a near saint too Crabby.   I don't give a flying ffffff if he's Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist or whatever, brown, white, or blue.

Sparky, if a doctor who happened to be Muslim could save your life, would you refuse his/her help?

There are a lot of Muslims around where I live. Many of the women wear headscarves and a few the complete niquab. Mostly they mind their own business and get one with life.They dont give noisy boozy parties.
Rules are for the guidance of wise men and the blind obedience of fools.

One of my private clients is a Moslem lady and treats me better than the patronising way some "English" people have treated me in the past because they saw a cleaner as a lower sort of person. She always stops to have a sit down and a chat - with proper social distancing of course. And there are not 10 of them living on one house. Just a couple and three children.
The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing

So nice to hear a voice of reason Temperence.. I think the Muslim faith, along with others, has had so much mud thrown at it that it's sticking. I'm protectionist but I'm realistic too. An accommodation has to be found and personally, I think it's more than likely that one will be.. Inshallah.. (Just for Sparky.. ;D )
