An ultra-conservative strand of Islam supporting sharia law in the West is now part of German youth culture, an expert has claimed – a day after raids on Salafist groups suspected of having links to ISIS.

Strict rules promoted by Salafism, the extremist doctrine which drives ISIS, are an ‘answer to uncertainty’ felt by increasing numbers of young Muslims in Germany, according to Susanne Schroeter from Goethe University in Frankfurt.

The hardline strand of Sunni Islam has become a ‘protest culture in an era where other protest cultures no longer elicit a reaction,’ the professor of ethno-religious studies added.

Her comments come a day after hundreds of German police launched coordinated raids in ten of the country’s 16 states hunting for ISIS supporters and recruiters among a Salafist group calling itself ‘The True Religion’.

Armed police and elite SEK anti-terror units were involved in the raids on more than 200 apartments and offices belonging to organisers and supporters of the group which publicly backs the aims of ISIS.
