 Integration in a society refers to the process of individuals or groups becoming part of the larger community and adopting its values, norms, and customs

 In the context of Europe, the integration of Muslim immigrants has been a contentious issue for many years. Europeans think that Muslim immigrants do not integrate well into their societies due to several reasons, including:
  • Islamophobia: Many Europeans hold negative attitudes towards Muslims, which can lead to discrimination and exclusion

  • Religious identity: Muslim immigrants tend to identify more with their home communities, which can hinder their integration into the larger society

  • Public anxieties: The presence of Muslim immigrants in Europe has led to public anxieties, particularly around issues such as terrorism and cultural differences

  • Perception of threat: After the 9/11 attacks, the perception of Muslim immigrants changed from "immigrant" to "threat" or "challenge" to the peace and prosperity of Europe

To address these issues, some experts suggest that European countries need to incorporate religion into the national fabric and create policies that promote inclusion and equal opportunities for all

 Additionally, some argue that a period of benign neglect of the Islam issue could be beneficial, but only after religion has been fully incorporated into the national fabric
