A large majority of the Dutch people is worried about the perceived growing differences between Muslims and non-Muslims. Almost 70 percent mentions being worried about the gap between these two groups, and 43 percent even mentions having great worries. This has come to the fore in an Ipso-research that has been carried out for the Dutch broadcasting service NOS.
Almost three quarters of the Dutch people think the differences between Muslims and non-Muslims have grown over the past years. The participants of the research were also asked if they have become more fearful of a terrorist attack over the past year. 70 percent says not to have become more fearful but also not less fearful. Almost none of the participants have become less fearful.
