AfD (Alternative für Deutschland) is not anti-migration party, it is for controlled immigration, member Hugh Bronson told RT. We have to know people who seek asylum in Germany and these people have to be ready to be integrated, he adds.
“Alternative for Germany” officially adopted an anti-Islam stance in its new election manifesto. The party has rapidly gained popularity on its strong anti-migrant agenda and threatens to cause a real headache to Chancellor Angela Merkel in next year’s general election.
The manifesto now demands a ban on minarets and calls for prayer, and would forbid women from wearing burqas in public. It also rejects the possibility of a so-called westernization or enlightenment of Islam, warning that the religion is becoming increasingly radicalized instead. The document was adopted at the party’s two-day conference in Stuttgart, accompanied by protests and mass arrests among the left-wing demonstrators.
