Third of Muslims in overcrowded homes

Muslims in England are suffering from poor housing conditions with 32 per cent living in overcrowded accommodation, according to research.

The Housing Corporation study found that 12 per cent of Muslim households have no central heating and they are less satisfied with their landlords than tenants overall.

Almost one in 10 Muslim social housing tenants said they or a member of their family had been attacked or harassed in the street, compared with less than one in 20 of all tenants.

The study, carried out in 2004, was the first national housing survey to include questions about religion.
