-many different faiths/religions are able to freely practice their religion and are not intimidated to do so(compared to the past where there was fear in practising your religion ie the jews were persecuted in Wiemar Germany and in the makkans period( 610-622ce) where the Muslims were unable to practise their religion because of enermies ie ibn Ubayy and the Quraysh clans)

- UK legislation permit different religions to practise their faith freely and this is shown from the growing number of churches, mosques, temples ect , this encourages the growth of religions thus uk has evolved as a multifaith society

I can go endlessly but i dont wanna bore you...hope its useful

Because in some countries most people are the same religion. But in the UK there are many different religions.

N.B. multi = many, faith = religion, society = a community of people.

Hope this helps :D

Because several religions are practised here and everyone is free to practise their own religion

yh thbats true the reason why uk is becoming a multi-faith society is that people are migrating to uk especially indain people of different backgrounds.  Also many people practise their religions in the UK but christians don't like the fact that we do becayse they want to practise their laws of their religion and put it into the governemnts laws.

Natalie and Olivia can u email me bk on [email protected] ** cheers x
