Honeybadger Don’t Care: AfD manifesto criticized as ‘unconstitutional’ for statements on Islam

“Islam is not part of Germany” is the phrase in the AfD policy paper that is drawing fierce criticism across the country.

The manifesto approved by the majority of the 2,400 delegates at their party congress in the western city of Stuttgart demands a ban on minarets on mosques, the call to prayer, full-face veils for women and headscarves in schools.

Aiman Mazyek, who chairs Germany’s Central Council of Muslims, said the Alternative for Germany’s (AfD’s) “Islamophobic” agenda, would not help “one jot” to solve problems. He told the “Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung” it would only split German society.
