Burhan Kesici, Germany’s Muslim leaders condemn AfD’s anti-Islam proposal

SHAFAQNA- Heads of leading German Islamic groups have criticized the AfD’s proposed ban on minarets and burqas. Germany’s Islamic Council has even compared the far-right party with the NSDAP.

“I think the AfD is playing with people’s fears,” Burhan Kesici, the head of the Islamic Council, told public broadcaster Deutschlandfunk. “We had a wave of refugees last year, we have a lot of unemployment, we have other problems. I think now they are trying to score, using Islam to attract new voters,” he added.
