German Constitution in line with Islam

Berlin: German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday rejected claims by the anti-foreigner Alternative for Germany (AfD) party that Islam was not in line with the nation’s constitution and represented a danger to the country, DPA reported.

“In Germany, freedom of worship is guaranteed by the constitution and that is true for Muslims in our country”, Merkel said at a joint press conference in Berlin with the leader of the world’s biggest Muslim country, Indonesian President Joko Widodo.

Merkel was speaking after Muslim leaders in Germany compared claims by the AfD that Islam was incompatible with the constitution to views promoted under the Hitler regime.
