Fighting radical tendencies

23.06.2011/ 24.06.2011
Lower Saxony’s Office for the Protection of the Constitution is planning on stepping up efforts to counteract radical tendencies within Muslim communities. During the 4th “extremism-symposium” in Hannover, the President of the Office, Hans-Werner Wargel, emphasised the pressing need to prevent the radicalisation of young Muslims. To counteract radical tendencies, the security services aim to collaborate with Muslim associations. The Office for the Protection of the Constitution is especially concerned about the Salafi stream within Islam due to their anti-constitutional views and attitudes.
