'Free Voters' raise questions about women's understanding 05.10.2018 Roedermark - The recent charity run of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is becoming a political issue. In a Press release, the Free Voters (FWF) criticise the fact that Muslims girls were allowed to take part in the run until the age of 13 only, while older women were excluded. Mayor Roland Kern should have addressed this as a participant or cancel his participation. In their criticism, the Free Voters refer to a report in our newspaper and in their communication, they call for "respect for gender equality". The politicians expressly praise the fact that the Ahmadiyya Communities organise a charity walk every year in Germany and distribute the entry fees and donations of their members for social purposes to local associations and corporations. Unfortunately for the FWR the recent event has an undesirable connotation. "How should the much-vaunted integration succeed if our foreign fellow citizens build obstacles to it?" asks FWR spokesman Siegried Kupzock. He contacted one of the organizers of the charity walk and explained the FWR's reservations. It has been argued that there is a Koran-based rule in Islam which prescribes a general separation of male and female activities in public. The women of the Ahmadiyya community are absolutely equal, but would like to stay among themselves during sporting activities. more: and original German article: www.op-online.de

This is the only topic that creates controversy in Germany. We should address it somehow and see how we can counter it or face it.
