More than 1,000 Germans converted to Islam over past year

Berlin, Dec 13, IRNA

For the first time ever, more than 1,000 Germans have converted to Islam over the past 12 months, the director of the German-based Islam-Archive Central Institute Salim Abdullah announced Tuesday.

Some 1,152 Germans have converted to Islam between May 2004 and May 2005.

Abdullah could not pinpoint the exact reason as to why there are this many Islam converts.

Interestingly enough, whenever the media attack Islam, more people convert to Islam than in normal years, Abdullah said.

More than 60 percent of those who convert are woman, most of them single and well-educated, he added.

According to statistics released by his institute in May 2005, some 14,352 out of 3.2 million Muslims in Germany are of German-origin.
