Senior German politician wants to introduce an ‘Islam law’ to prevent foreign financing of mosques


Andreas Scheuer, the Christian Social Union’s general secretary, argued in an interview with Die Walt that “political Islam” undermines efforts to integrate people in Germany.

Mr Scheuer said financing of mosques or Islamic kindergartens from foreign countries, such as Turkey and Saudi Arabia, must be stopped.

He also said “all imams must be trained in Germany and share our fundamental values”.
