Germany: Salafists dominate Islam Conference agenda

Via Deutsche Welle:
Although the official topic of Germany's annual Islam Conference was about domestic violence and forced marriage, a recent campaign by Salafist Muslims to distribute free Korans was a key topic of discussion.

Senior German officials gathered in Berlin on Thursday for their annual conference with the Muslim leaders from around the country. One of the main talking points of the conference was a recent drive by fundamentalist Salafist Muslims to hand out free copies of the Koran, although it was not officially on the agenda.

"We all agree that Salafist extremism is not acceptable and does not work in a free society, as we have in Germany," said German Interior Minister Hans-Peter Friedrich, adding that the Salafists did not have the support of the majority of Germany's Muslims.
