    Guardian Muslim Britain Special Report

From the 17th-21st June, the Guardian printed a series of articles on Muslims in Britain as part of a special report. In the words of the Guardian leader on the 19th of June the series was an attempt ‘to shine the light wider and more penetratingly on the lives, hopes and fears of Britain's Muslims. If they did not know it already, readers will now be aware of how often the reality differs radically from the cruder stereotypes.’

This poll is part of our review of the Guardian series in which we attempt to gauge the success of the series. It is also an attempt to identify and highlight examples of balanced and fair reporting of Muslims in Britain, to be upheld as examples of best practice.

We would be extremely grateful therefore if you could take a few minutes to answer the questions below. Your identity will remain anonymous but the age and gender data may be used to look for any trends in opinions between different age groups and the gender divide.
