Sun Somewhat Corrects False Claim that Muslims think ‘75% of UK is Islamic’

On 4th December 2016, the Sun published an article following the Casey Review on Integration where it inaccurately wrote as a headline, ‘British Muslims are so cut-off from society they think 75 per cent of the UK is Islamic, report reveals’.

Where in fact, the report was talking about only one school whose reference was to the ‘Asian’ population, and the reference to Muslims was totally unjustifiable. Miqdaad Versi, Assistant Secretary General of the MCB complained to the paper, which later attempted to make changes, though not in full. The Sun amended it’s headline slightly to be a little more factual, but still kept the jist of the story and referring to Muslims.
