While recent immigration from Muslim countries contributes to the diversification of Muslim life in Portugal, postcolonial people of Indian-Mozambican background continue playing a key role Islamic associational work. One example is the Youth Association of the Islamic Community (CilJovem) in Lisbon. Since September 11, its members are frequently asked to speak about Islam-related issues in the Portuguese media. Islam and Muslim-ness are important to them and they have become more engaged in Muslim activities at the international level. A study which compares cultural attitudes of these young Portuguese Sunni Muslims with those of non-Muslim peers reveals little difference: they are deeply attached to their city and home country and must also be seen as typical representatives of the middle class Lisbon youth. Alors que l'immigration récente en provenance des pays musulmans contribue à la diversification de la vie musulmane au Portugal, la communauté post-coloniale issue de l'émigration indo-mozambicaine joue un rôle essentiel dans le travail associatif. L'Association des Jeunes de la Communauté Islamique de Lisbonne (CilJovem) en est un exemple. Depuis le 11 septembre, ses membres sont souvent sollicités par les médias portugais pour parler des sujets relatis à l'islam. Pour eux, l'islam et la musulmanité sont importants et ils s'engagent de plus en plus dans des activités musulmanes à un niveau international. Une étude comparative des attitudes culturelles de ces jeunes mulsumans sunnites portugais et des non-musulmans revèle peu de différences : ils sont profondément attachés à leur ville et à leur pays et doivent également être vus comme représentatifs de la jeunesse de la classe moyenne de Lisbonne. Apesar da imigração recente oriunda de países muçulmanos contribuir para a diversificação da vida muçulmana em Portugal, a população pós-colonial de origem indo-moçambicana continua a desempenhar um papel pivotal no trabalho associativo islâmico. Um dos exemplos é a Commissão de Jovens da Comunidade Islâmica (CilJovem) em Lisboa. Desde o Setembro 11 que os seus membros são frequentemente abordados para falar de assuntos relacionados com o Islão para os media portugueses. O Islão e o ser muçulmano são importantes para eles e tornaram-se mais envolvidos em actividades muçulmanas a nível internacional. Um estudo comparativo das atitudes culturais destes jovens portugueses sunitas com aqueles dos seus pares não-muçulmanos revela poucas diferenças : eles sentem-se profundamente ligados à sua cidade e país de origem, e devem ser também encarados como representantes típicos da juventude da classe média lisboeta.
