People more positive about Muslims

The public image of Muslims has improved in the last two years with some 20% of the population ‘positive’ about this group compared to 14% in 2006, according to a TNS Nipo survey conducted for RTL Nieuws.

The percentage of people with negative feelings about Muslims has fallen to 24% from 40% two years ago.
A possible reason for the improvement in intercultural relations is that there is more contact between various groups, said the researchers. In 2006 61% said they had no contact with Muslims, today this has fallen to 33%.
