It's quite possible for descendants of Turkish and Moroccan immigrants (i.e.the Second Generation) to combine strong feelings of belonging to different social groups, such as feeling "Amsterdammer", "Rotterdammer", "Dutch" and Muslim.A fair percentage of the Second Generation does not practise their religion by praying and are of the opinion that religion should play no role, or only a minor one, in today's society and in politics. Many find the use of religious symbols in schools acceptable, but only a minority say that Muslim women should wear a head scarf outside the home.
