German central council of muslims demands that violence of young muslims be thoroughly analysed

After a study was published two weeks ago, showing that young Muslims are more violent the more religious they are (http://www.euro-islam.info/2010/06/05/violence-among-young-muslims-increases-with-attachment-to-religion-study-finds), the Central Council of Muslim has demanded further analysis. The General Secretary Aiman Mazyek misses a serious expertise regarding the causes of the phenomenon. He believes that the study has not carefully examined the youths’ religiosity, which is often vague and not closely related to a certain faith community. The study had indeed pointed to the fact that Islam was not the root cause, but a “macho culture” that was conveyed in some traditional Muslim families.
