The majority of British Muslims oppose violence against people who publish images depicting the Prophet Muhammad, a poll for the BBC suggests.
The majority of British Muslims are not in favor of violent retribution for those who publish images of the Prophet Mohammed, nor do they sympathize with fighters traveling abroad to fight with Islamists, a poll reveals.
The ComRes survey, compiled for the BBC, found that two-thirds of respondents felt acts of violence against people who produce images of the Prophet Mohammed could never be justified.
The results come as increasing anti-Islamic sentiment sweeps across Europe in the wake of the Paris attacks.
The far-right group Pegida, which aims to ban Islam and has already held demonstrations in Germany and Austria, has planned its first UK rally on February 28 in Newcastle.
