The German government set up a 'suicide bomber hotline' Monday to aid Muslims who feel pressured into advocating extremist ideas, reported DPA.

The hotline should not be confused with a standard 'suicide hotline' for individuals considering hurting themselves. The service is called "HATIF," which means "telephone" in Arabic, and is German acronym for Out of Terrorist and Islamic Fascism, according to a Monday report by DPA.



A statement from the German Federal Constitution Protection Office said "the primary goal of HATIF is to prevent violence in the name of Islam."
