Poll: Majority of Czechs are afraid of Islam

Islam in the Czech Republic

Prague, May 16 (ČTK) — About two-thirds of Czechs who have used the European election calculator EUvox consider Islam a threat to Czech society, according to an analysis of the results carried out by the Academy of Sciences Sociological Institute, released today.

The institute assessed the opinions of 18,000 Czechs. More than 1 million people used the application throughout the EU.

EUvox is to help voters in their decision-making. It offers 30 questions. The result is the highest-percentage accord with a party running in the elections.

Islam is feared mainly by those who agreed most with the opposition Dawn and the Civic Democrats (ODS), the extra-parliamentary Party of Free Citizens, and partially also the government ANO movement.

Only about 10% of Czechs are not afraid of Islam. The least afraid of it are supporters of the Green Party.
