[Ed. – Sounds like a perfect solution.]
Local authorities are calling for classes on Islam to be brought in at schools across the country after a radicalized Muslim youth attacked passengers on a train with an axe on Monday.
“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 on Wednesday.
In this way the state can gain more control over the upbringing of Muslim youths, Landsberg said.
On Monday evening, an attacker whom investigators believe was a 17-year-old refugee from Afghanistan, seriously wounded four people with an axe and is reported to have shouted “Allahu Akbar” (God is great) several times.
Terror group Isis later released a video in which the youth made threats in Pashto while holding a knife.
Senior figures in the church had already called at the end of May for Islam classes to become compulsory at schools.
