Austria passes c̶o̶n̶t̶r̶o̶v̶e̶r̶s̶i̶a̶l̶ ̶ sensible reforms to 1912 Islam law

The Austrian parliament has passed controversial reforms to the country’s century-old law on Islam.

The bill, which is partly aimed at tackling Islamist radicalism, gives Muslims more legal security but bans foreign funding for mosques and imams.

Austria’s Integration Minister, Sebastian Kurz, defended the reforms but Muslim leaders say they fail they to treat them equally.
