Muslims proud to be British - report

Guardian, Muslims Proud to be British? There's something to learn from the surprise, 23 Nov 2011.

Clearly many British citizens have both a strong religious identity and a strong national identity. Yet it also seems clear that many people see these identities as mutually exclusive. Why is this the case?"
