· If you are a Muslim and resident in the UK, tick the box marked 'Muslim'.
Why all UK Muslim residents should complete the Census 2001?
1. We will get accurate statistics on the Muslim community in Britain, for the first time.
2. Accurate statistics will help us seek the type of schools we need, housing, medical and social facilities, employment opportunities, and a fair share of our country's resources.
3. Muslim Identity - as opposed to racial or ethnic identity - will get clear public recognition
For yourself, your family and the future of the Muslim community in Britain - please answer the religion question in the Census on Census Day.
You will not get another opportunity like this for another ten years.
(The Census in Britain is done every ten years. The Muslim Council of Britain and its affiliates have been campaigning for many years for this religion question and all UK Muslim residents are urged to complete Census 2001 for real and lasting benefits.)
There are legal safeguards to ensure the confidentiality of census data and prevent misuse.
