Daily Star Falsely Sensationalises Story on Muslims Against Policy Exchange Poll

In December 2016, the Daily Star falsely slurred Muslims against a Policy Exchange poll which misrepresented facts. The headline read, ‘Almost half Brit Muslims want Sharia Law and Wouldnt report relative in ISIS: shock study’. After a complaint by Miqdaad Versi, Assistant Secretary General of the MCB, the Daily Star amended the inaccurate headline online and issued a detailed correction with an apology in February 2017.
