AMSTERDAM -- According to a survey conducted by a Dutch television programme, the majority of young people of Moroccan origin rarely or never visit a mosque. However, 97 percent observe the month-long Muslim holiday of Ramadan.
The survey shows that a large majority of ethnic Moroccan youth would want their children to attend a Koran school, the Muslim equivalent of a Christian Sunday school. However, they also want their children to become part of Dutch society.
