Muslims who set up a proselytizing for Islam booth at a Christmas market have been told to shut it down after worried locals concerned about security complained to the town hall.
UK Express The Christmas market in the town of Rüdesheim on the Rhine, Germany, is a popular tourist destination famed for its festive atmosphere, which traditionally features stalls selling mulled wine, frankfurters and gifts.
But members of the Ahmadiyya Islamic community set up an information booth this year which has offended locals who complain that the stand is not in-fitting with the spirit of Christmas.
Local residents confronted the Muslims operating the stall at Rüdesheim town hall and asked them to vacate the market. One outraged resident said: “This does not belong at a Christmas market!”
Although some members of the Rüdesheim community have complained to police, law enforcement does not have the power to force the operators of the stand to close the booth.
The stand’s operators attended the the town hall meeting, where they were asked to vacate because of the “danger potential due to the violent public reactions.” Local people argued that a stand “which is obviously a question of the Koran design” does not belong at a Christmas market.
But Rüdesheim mayor Volker Mosler – from Angela Merkel’s CDU party – hit out at complainants. He said: “I am absolutely amazed there is so much intolerance.”
Representatives of the Ahmadiyya community argued they want to raise awareness of their religion as a way of promoting inclusion and harmony during the Christmas season. (No, as a way imposing their death cult on Christians)
Germans have slammed the stall on Twitter, with @johanstressmann writing: “In Rüdesheim, the Muslim Ahmadiyya can spread their ideology on the Christmas market. The sheep are not so stupid.” Another blasted: “Muslim propaganda on Christmas market in Rüdesheim!”
