Liberal German Muslims are to found a new association

Liberal German Muslims have announced their plans to found a new association to voice the concerns of those who do not feel represented by the current largely conservative associations. Lamya Kaddor, a feminist and strong critic of Islam, but a “liberal believing Muslim” herself, is one of the spokespersons of the initiative, which aims to incorporate Muslims, who see themselves based in Germany and represent a contemporary Islam. Independence from Islamic countries will be as important as a historical and enlightened interpretation of the Quran.
