German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich has come under attack from the key author of “The Daily Life of Muslims in Germany” study, published by the Bild newspaper on Thursday.
Some editorial writers have also questioned why Bild was able to obtain the study and release it first.
In an interview with the Süddeutsche Zeitung published Saturday, the study’s main author Wolfgang Frindte said, “After the publication in a tabloid newspaper there was a lot of outrage and even despair in our team.”
He said the findings were published in such a way that the Muslims who were interviewed for the study “could have felt misused, and that’s sad.”
