You'd think a radical axe attack would lead to calls for less Islam, not more of it.
Authorities are now calling for Islam classes to be compulsory in German schools after a Muslim migrant from Afghanistan attacked people with an axe.
“It is appropriate to bring in classes on Islam in state schools or schools overseen by the state,” Gerd Landsberg, head of the association of local councils, told the Rheinische Post.
He added that by doing this, the state can have more control in the upbringing of Muslim youth.
According to The Local, six of Germany’s 16 states currently offer classes in Islam at school.
