The German government is reaching out to the country’s 4.5 million Muslims by sitting down with community leaders, experts and imams to talk about improving their integration in the country.

German Interior Minister Horst Seehofer opened the “German Islam Conference” Wednesday saying the dialogue with Germany’s Muslims will tackle their “beliefs, convictions and traditions … and how they can be put in line with the culture and values rooted in German society.”

Seehofer says training imams in Germany and ending financial support of mosques from abroad are two important goals.

He says the integration of the more than 1 million, mostly Muslim migrants who have arrived in Germany since 2015 needs to be improved and asked that the migrants contribute themselves by honoring Germany’s basic values and learning the language.

  1. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at is training its Imams in Germany. It is funding its activities in Germany from German sources. Seehofer’s goals already met.

  2. To have a complete dialogue we have linked several relevant articles in the above post. Additionally we promote secularism in every country of the world and envision Islam only for personal and spiritual life.

  3. I think the media can help to promote the dialogue for better understanding between all faith if they gave chance to all who wants to join hands together to improve the integration in German society
