INTEGRATION LESSONS FOR BERLIN IMAMS

Muslim World

Germany’s politics, history and way of life are the focus of a pilot program for Berlin Muslim Imams, which aims at equipping the Muslim scholars with the tools to help their community integrate in the mainstream German society. About 25 imams from all over the capital have registered so far to join the voluntary pilot program which started this week. The goal of the program is to make the Muslim leaders better informed about the ways of life in the country they live in. The program was initiated and developed by the Islam Forum Berlin, an organisation established in 2005 with the aim of improving the relationship between Muslims and non-Muslims in the city. Germany’s federal government and the European Union are funding the Berlin pilot scheme. During the course, which has two lessons per week, imams will get sessions about the German history and society. In addition, participants will visit the Bundestag lower house of parliament and engage in discussions on Germany’s democratic political system.
