Subject: Germany Against Islam
Truly there is no end to learning and so we have a lot to learn from what German Chancellor Angela Merkel has launched. It may be correct to say she is not late by a day.
We had in the recent past some good exposure to the German views on Islam. Now we learn what actually the German government has undertaken to do. We attach in this connection one PTI report from “The Statesman” of December 17 with the caption that hits on the point straight, “Markel For Unity Against Islam”, and the other one from “The Asian Age”, which says, “15,000 Join Anti-Islam Protest In E. Germany”.
Alarmed by the growing popularity of an anti-Islam movement in Germany, Chancellor Angela Merkel and other government leaders have appealed to the public to stay away from it and not to “become tools” in the hands of the organisers of such events.
The exact words spoken by the German Chancellor were:
“There is freedom of demonstration in Germany, but there is no place for spreading hatred and slander against people who come to us from other countries,” Merkel said at a news conference here yesterday. Therefore, everyone should be careful not to become tools in the hands of the organisers of such events, she said.”
Merkel has been duly supported by Justice Minister Heiko Mass in this movement that was organised by a right-wing group called ‘Patriotic Europeans Against Islamisation of the West Pegida’. The movement began in the eastern German city of Dresden in September by staging demonstrations every Monday to protest against the government. Justice Minister expressed his apprehension in a media interview: that the anti-Islam protest movement could lead to a “new escalation of the agitation against migrants and refugees”
Well friends, do not now think even though India boasts of a pluralistic, multicultural and assimilative cultural inheritance, we have a lot to learn from what Germany have undertaken to defend their personal religion or rather religious ethos, perhaps well in time?
