ALTHOUGH in Slovakia there is a high level of defiance against Islam, there is also considerable tolerance towards it, the daily SME reported. According to a poll conducted by the MVK agency for the daily, more than 40 percent of Slovaks consider Islam to be a worse religion than other religions, but 42 percent consider it to be equal to other religions.
When asked, however, whether they would agree to have a mosque built in their areas, as many as 61.5 percent said they would be against it.
