AfD manifesto criticized as 'unconstitutional' for statements on Islam
The manifesto adopted by Germany's right-wing populist AfD party has been condemned by politicians and religious communities. A Muslim leader called it socially divisive and a Jewish leader dubbed it anti-religious.
"Islam is not part of Germany" is the phrase in the AfD policy paper that is drawing fierce criticism across the country.
The manifesto approved by the majority of the 2,400 delegates at their party congress in the western city of Stuttgart demands a ban on minarets on mosques, the call to prayer, full-face veils for women and headscarves in schools.
