Top News

Former German president Christian Wolf said his country accepts the existence of a "large number" of different religions on its territory as long as followers of these religions are committed to "strict rules." At the Church of the Evangelical Conference in Dortmund on Saturday (June 22, 2019), Wolf said that at the forefront of these rules is a constitution that shuns Islamic law in the life of society.

Wolf, who held the presidency between 2010 and 2012, said that the pillars of Islam, such as the five prayers or the fast of Ramadan, "are very well in line with our society."

"Islam is also part of Germany at the moment," Wolf said nine years ago when he was president of Germany. Wolf said today that he repeats this phrase "more strongly," pointing out that he is concerned that the percentage of Germans who accepted this phrase when He said it for the first time was 60%, but now it has dropped to only 40%.

"The question of how much Germany can accept from any religion conceals a great deal of conflict," he said. "The constitution gives a clear answer: it should not be neglected. One because of his belief. At the same time, Wolf called on Islamic ties to reduce their dependence on money donors abroad, in reference to the controversy over the Turkish Islamic Affairs Union (DTP), the largest Islamic organization in Germany.

Wolf said that the opening of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to the central mosque of the "Organization" in Cologne in autumn 2018, was a big mistake and disappointing.

For his part, Ayman Mezik, head of the Supreme Council of Muslims in Germany, called for Muslims to be seen as an integral part of the rights and duties of society. "We, the Muslims, are the service of the bear who killed the owner," he said. "A president named Frank-Walter Steinmeier and my adviser is Angela Merkel."He said.
