The German writer G_nter Wallraff proposed reading Salman Rushdi’s ‘Satanic Verses’ in a controversial new mosque in Cologne. The religious foundation building the mosque discussed the project but eventually refused the proposal. G_nter Wallraff doesn’t think of himself as a provocateur, he just wants to get a dialogue going and to put the integration of Muslims in German society to the test. Now he is participating in a critical Islam conference. The critical Islam conference will take place in spring/summer 2008. A pubic announcement event, a penal discussion of Islam critics, including Wallraff, took place at the University of Cologne on 1 December. Spiegel Online has interviewed him about Islam in Germany.
