Wiener Akademikerbund: 15 Demands to the Islamic Faith Community in Autria

Posted by paulipoldie on November 8, 2009

The Vienna Association of Academics demands the following from Muslims in Austria:

(Note: This is the first time these demands have been made public)

We demand the following:

1. Full disclosure of religious foundations, as required in the law on religion. A certified translation of the Qur’an and the Ahadith are to be deposited (in the Ministry of Interior).
2. All fatwas from imams preaching in Austria are to be translated into German and deposited in the Ministry of Interior.
3. Public Service: All Muslims entering public service must dissociate — in writing — from Koranic verses prohibiting subordination to the instructions of “infidel” officials and judgments from “infidel” judges.
4. School: Teachers, including Islamic religious instructors, must dissociate from those Koranic verses that propagate the disadvantage of women, corporal punishment and violence against members of other religions (and atheists and non-theists).
5. Friday prayers and Quran lessons in Quran schools (i.e. madrassas) must be held in German.
6. Ban on covering faces: Total ban of burqa and chador in public.
7. Mosques I: Adjustments to the building regulations so that the preservation of the Austrian Cultural heritage is guaranteed (no dome and minarets).
8. Mosques II: Prayer houses and rooms are often misused and thus viewed as conducive to setting up cells of Islamic parallel society. Mosque-affiliated businesses, restaurants, commercial areas are — unless correctly legally established — to close immediately.
9. Criteria for the awarding of citizenship: Knowledge about the Christian-humanist foundations of our social order is to be tested authoritatively.
10. Asylum applications: An applicant must show a commitment to our Christian-humanist values.
11. Forcing the headscarf on children is to be considered an act of violence on the part of the legal guardian and must be treated as child abuse.
12. Animal Cruelty: Ban on trade in and the sale of meat slaughtered according to Islamic rites.
13. Polygamy: As prescribed by law to religious groups in Austria, a ban on marriages in mosques without prior civil wedding must be enforced.
14. Immediate cessation of all public measures designed to encourage refusal of integration (separate cemeteries, special treatments in hospitals, offer of social services in the languages of the countries of origin of migrants, etc.).
15. Call on the Islamic Faith Community to focus efforts on enforcing building permits for Christian Churches in Islamic states.

    I deeply regret to say that some parts of this list (3, 4, 10) will be considred by any european court as discriminatory against muslims. No government will ever vote a law containning such demands.

    For the N° 15, it’s simply unrealistic, European communities have absolutely no power over religious politics in any islamic states.
    The real problem is not about building churches in muslim states but to defend our democratic values against islamic encroachments and the propagation of charia.

    To be efficient, you need to ask for european rules and human rights compatible mesures, you are fighting against religious freedom in this matter (unless you can prove to your government and Europe that islam is NOT a religion, good luck), and you have to respect the rule of “proportionality” (threat to society vs restriction of freedom) to forbid something to somebody.
    This is a major legal issue you have to keep in mind, nothing realistic can be demanded without checking first for compatibility with european regulations.

    Best regards
