There is a growing group of young Salafists in the Netherlands who politicians can't get a grip on, according to a study by Mohammad Nazar Soroush at Tilburg University, for which he is receiving his doctorate, NOS reports.
Nazar Soroush also noticed a rapid growth in the number of young Salafists. In 2004 he only saw a few young people at Salafist lectures, now there are hundreds. "And I see that they marry young, have children young and also involve these children in their religious currents at an increasingly younger age, starting with group 5", he said, according to NOS. "These are people who grew up largely without having to deal with other views and who also learned from childhood that people who think differently are not worth a penny."
