by Herbert Müller
The latest violence has sparked concerns about the German Salafist scene. Islam expert Herbert Müller of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution explains why the extremists pose a threat.
DW: Salafism is a general term often used to describe all the dangerous elements in the German Islamist scene. What's really behind that term?
Herbert Müller: Salafists are people who think they should live like their pious ancestors – that is they want to follow the example set by the prophet and the three following generations.
