Danish Muslims more devout than in years past
A new poll finds that Danish Muslims are significantly more religious than a decade ago and more than three fourths of them believe that the Quran's instructions should be followed completely.
According to a poll conducted by Wikle for Jyllands-Posten, Danish Muslims pray more now than they did in 2006, are more likely to believe in the literal word of the Quran and to support the idea that Muslim women should cover their heads in public.
The survey found that 77.2 percent of Danish Muslims agreed that "the Quran's instructions should be followed completely". That is a marked increase from 2006, when just 62.4 percent agreed. The number who think that Muslim girls should wear head scarves also increased significantly, from 28.6 percent in 2006 to 42.7 percent.
