Southern Germany segregates Christian and Muslim asylum seekers

The government of Lower Bavaria in southern Germany has segregated Christian and Muslim asylum seekers into different residential homes. The Bavarian Refugees Council called the measure an “inhuman act of reallocation”.

The government confirmed that they had moved 40 asylum seekers of Christian background due to rising numbers of incoming Muslim asylum seekers from Somalia. The office’s spokesman said that asylum seekers of different faiths usually got along well, but there were often a few troublemakers, which is why the measure was necessary.

The Refugees Council criticised that the displaced refugees were no longer able to attend their courses, therapies or advisory services, while the government claims not to be responsible for these issues.
