ALTHOUGH there is a high level of opposition to Islam in Slovakia, 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 others. However, 42 percent consider it to be equal to other religions.
Nevertheless, when asked whether they would agree to have a mosque built in their area, as many as 61.5 percent of Slovaks said they would be against it.
