First school for Muslim imams to open in Berlin
Germany's first private institute for the education of Muslim Imams will open soon in Berlin's Karlshorst neighbourhood.
The Institut Buhara, housed in a former culture house for East German railway workers, hosted an open house last Friday to introduce their school to curious local residents and the media.
"We want to educate German-speaking Imams who are anchored in society and have a perfect command of the language," the school's 37-year-old founder Alexander Weiger said, adding that there is demand for such skills among believers as well as government officials.
