Minister calls for crackdown on extremism
German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich has called for a tougher crack-down on religious fanaticism and on those inciting violence.
That applies especially to the growing number of radical Salafists, Islamists who want to introduce Sharia law, in Germany.
Speaking at a congress in Munich of his conservative CSU party, Friedrich said he planned to impose a "systematic ban" on extremist organizations. He also wants to make it easier to deport not only violent fanatics but also those spewing so-called "hate speech" and inciting violence.
