Muslim feels discriminated against more often

Muslims in Europe feel increasingly discriminated against in the past ten years.

Dutch Muslims experience discrimination more often than the European average. These are the findings of a survey of more than 10,000 Muslims in 15 different EU countries by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA).

Of those surveyed says 17 percent in the past five years to be discriminated against. In a previous research by the FRA from 2008 said 10% of European Muslims to be discriminated against on religious grounds. The percentage in Netherlands is higher. Of the Muslims in the Netherlands says 30 percent ever to be disadvantaged because of their religious belief.

Those surveyed were asked to discrimination in situations in four areas: as a job seeker, at work, when looking for a property and in their contacts with education authorities. Of the unemployed respondents said 31 percent in the past five years to be discriminated against. The research was held between October 2015 and July 2016.
