Half Of Turks In Germany Regard Islamic Law As Supreme

A shocking new university study reveals that half of the Turks in Germany regard Islamic law above German law and the youth are the most devout. The study, commissioned by the University of Munster, surveyed 1,201 respondents of Turkish ethnicity on a range of issues and found that many hold extremely conservative views when it comes to the role of Islam in their lives. The survey is designed to reflect the societal opinions of the 2.6 million Turkish residents in Germany and shows that 47 per cent believe that “following the tenets of [their] religion is more important to [them] than the laws of the land in which [they] live,” Spiegel reports. First generation migrants tend to be the most conservative with 57 per cent of those polled believing that Islam is more important than state laws, and falls to just over one third by the second and third generations. The total number of people of Turkish descent that believe Islamic law trumps German law is therefore over one million. Even more shocking is that one third of all those polled thought that “Muslims should strive to a societal order like that in the time of Mohammed,” meaning a return to 7th century sharia
