More than half of Muslims want gay sex to be outlawed and nearly a quarter support areas of UK being run under sharia law

British Muslims disagree with the rest of the country on a range of key issues such as sexuality, freedom of speech and polygamy, according to new research.

A poll carried out by ICM discovered that more than half of Muslims disagree with homosexuality being legal in Britain, while a quarter support Sharia law being introduced into parts of the country instead of British law.

The full findings will feature in a Channel 4 documentary presented by Trevor Philips, former head of the Equality and Human Rights Commission, on Wednesday.
