It is possible to argue that Islam is a multicultural religion because there are Muslims of many nationalities and races who have different everyday cultures and speak different languages, but are united by Islam. However, the British definition of a multicultural society includes people of all religions meaning that there is no unifying force or factor between them.

What is the Islamic view of a multicultural society according to the British definition? At one end of the scale it is a very complex society unlike any seen in the past as most nations throughout history inhabited by Muslims would have had only one or two non-Muslim groups of people living in them at any one time. It is commonplace for (mostly quite conservative) Muslims to have no interest in non-Muslim ethnics and immigrants along with their cultures and religions although many respect and acknowledge the white non-Muslim British as the indigenous population. At the other end of the scale are (mostly liberal) Muslims who go round trying to embrace and promote diversity amongst every ethnic group following every religion except for the white British.
