Via Wales Online:
Muslims in Wales and England are practising their faith and passing it on to their children at much higher rates than any other religion, a new study by Welsh academics has shown.
The Cardiff University study, published online today in the journal Sociology, says that the proportion of adult Muslims actively practising the faith they were brought up in as children was 77%. That compares with 29% of Christians and 65% of other religions.
The study also found that 98% of Muslim children surveyed said they had the religion their parents were brought up in, compared with 62% of Christians and 89% of other religions.
