Unlike other publications that cater for a specific ethnic group, The Muslim News is aimed at the wider Muslim community. And according to the Office of National Statistics, Muslims are the most ethnically diverse religious group in England and Wales. This makes any advertisers attempt to target Muslim consumers using only “Asian” or any other ethnic publications counter-productive.
The Muslim News reaches the most diverse ethnic communities: Pakistani, Bangladeshi, Indian, Kashmiri, Sri Lankan, Turkish, Turkish Cypriots, Arabs, Iranian, Malaysian, Kosovan, Bosnian, African (including Somalis), Afro Caribbean etc.


Muslims are the next largest religious group in the UK with 2.7 million people (4.8 per cent of the population). Between 2001 and 2011 there has been an increase in people who identify as Muslim (3 % to 4.8%) the BIGGEST INCREASE OF ALL FAITHS. The Muslim News is available in most mosques, Islamic centres, universities, Muslim bookshops, colleges, libraries across the country and we have mail shots for over 600 mosques.
