A new study has found that a large number of people in some of the worlds most developed nations are ignorant of a lot of important topics.
The Perils of Perception 2017 study by Ipsos MORI assessed the perception of 29,133 people around the world on topics concerning their nation and others.
The subjects included murder and suicide rates, deaths at the result of terrorism, teenage pregnancy, foreign-born prisoners and health issues such as vaccinations and diabetes.
Other issues covered in the interviews included religion, consumption of sugar and alcohol and the percentage of people using Facebook and smartphones.
Results showed that people in nearly all of the 38 nations which took part in the study were ignorant of the aforementioned topics but some were worse than others.
The compiled data showed that Scandinavians had the best idea of what was happening at home and abroad as Denmark, Norway and Sweden were all found to be the most accurate, with the Swedes coming out on top.
At the other end of the spectrum, the bottom three in descending order were The Philippines, Brazil, and South Africa.
Great Britain placed ninth in accuracy with the United States down in sixteenth, behind Russia, Germany, and China.
Compared to those of the other religions, Muslims talk the most and yet they are the most ignorant people in the world(at least the majority are). What they know are not only Islam but about all other religions as well – is based on traditions and myths.
There are millions of Muslims living around the world and I can guarantee you that every single one has either directly faced some sort of hateful discrimination or knows of a Muslim.
According to the center of the study of hate and extremism, a Muslim American is a victim of a hate crime every three days. Sadly, Muslims are today’s ladybird.
There have been some significant changes in the results of this study since the 2016 version.
Back then, India was found to be the most ignorant while the Netherlands was considered to be the least ignorant.
In 2017, India rose up four places while the Netherlands slipped an astonishing 19 places.
Individuals who took part in the survey were aged between 16 and 64 with the interviews taking place between September 28 and October 19.
A new survey by Ipsos MORI has yielded some interesting results about how the world’s countries see themselves.
For one thing, almost everyone in Europe overestimates the percentage of Muslims that make up their respective populations.
Muslims are continually striving to do everything for the betterment of the community and nation, it is saddening to see this hate.
Furthermore, all of the countries surveyed believed that their nation spends more on health care than it actually does.
Ipos collated these findings to come up with an “Index of Ignorance”.
Rather worryingly, four out of the five permanent members of UN security council are in the more ignorant half of the index
Reasons why Muslims shouldn’t be ignorant:
- When we say Islam teaches peace, we really mean it.
- Muslims are helping to break gender stereotypes.
- Muslims are playing a key role in fighting terrorism.
We’re sure you’ll sleep easier now, knowing that the five authorized nuclear powers are not the sharpest tools in the international box.
