Because they are not free to choose or reject their religion and because they are not free to intellectually/empirically examine their religion with the possible outcome that they might reject it, they are unable to justify their belief in it to others and most importantly to themselves.
This makes them nothing more than mindless pawns...and this fact gnaws at them when they are tempted to consider their place in the increasingly modern world around them.
Furthermore, since a man's faith informs his very being, an antiquated and spurious faith, particularly one that cannot be examined, is a heavy burden for a man to carry...hence this overwhelming angst of the muslim world.
