Church in Germany calls for the unity of Muslims and Christians
The Catholic Church in Germany called for the unity of Muslims and Christians in the face of Islamophobia.
In a statement entitled, "No to Hate, the Union of Muslims and Christians to Confront Islamophobia", the church called on Muslims and Christians to reject and confront Islamophobia.
The phenomenon of Islamophobia has become more widespread after the recent terrorist attacks in the French city of Nice and the Austrian capital Vienna.
"It is an obligation of both Muslims and Christians to reject the phenomenon of Islamophobia, which has become more widespread in all of Europe," said the church, describing the hatred against Muslims as “illegal”.
The Catholic Church, which is one of Germany’s oldest churches, also drew attention to the social media platforms, indicating that they play an important role in distorting the image of Muslims and Islam.
