A German study has revealed that while many Muslims in Germany have fundamentalist viewpoints, a large majority rejects terrorist attacks. Commissioned by Germany’s Interior Ministry, the study found that four out of 10 Muslims in Germany would justify the use of violence in case Islam was threatened by the West. The study, which questioned 1,750 Muslims all over the country, was carried out by the Institute of Criminology at the University of Hamburg. It also found that nearly half of all Muslims living in German believe they will be granted entry to paradise if they die defending their religion. However, an overwhelming majority of Muslims living in Germany reject terrorism.
