Salafist Muslim movement to distribute 25 million Korans in Germany

Published: 04.12.12

The Salafist Muslim movement in Germany has launched a campaign to distribute 25 million Korans in the European country, the BBC reported Wednesday.

The initiative is monitored by a branch of the German security service in case it violates constitutional rules on religious freedom.

According to the report, the campaign is led by a Cologne-based cleric, Ibrahim Abou Nagie, who said he wants to save non-Muslims from hell.

The Interior Ministry in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia said the campaign was a form of aggressive proselytizing.

So far, about 300,000 German-language copies of Islam's holy book have been given away in urban areas. Additional copies are also being distributed in Austria and Switzerland.

Salafism is considered a very conservative movement in Islam whose members try to emulate the earliest followers of Prophet Muhammad.
