Britain is a home to sizable Muslim minority of 2.7 million, mostly of India, Pakistani and Bengali background. In July 2012, a report by the Institute for Social and Economic Research at the University of Essex found that Muslims are more likely of all the groups to be identified with the concept of 'Britishness'. In 2011, think tank Demo found that Muslims in the United Kingdom are more patriotic than rest of the population.
