Islamization in Germany: CDU chairman candidate Braun open to more muezzin calls

Berlin - Chancellery Minister Helge Braun (CDU) has spoken out in favor of more muezzin calls in German cities and communities. "The muezzin call is something that belongs to the free practice of religion and therefore also something that naturally exists in Germany," explained the candidate for the CDU party chairmanship on Monday on Bild-TV.

With his statement, Braun also referred to a model project that had previously been started in Cologne, where mosque communities can apply for permission to hold the muezzin call publicly. The initiative sparked discussions across Germany. In the meantime, an initial request for this has been received by the Cologne city authorities.

The 49-year-old later justified his choice of words on Twitter. "With my answer to your question, I only referred to the constitutional requirements." A renewed debate on the topic would not be productive, he pointed out to Bild-TV.

Braun: "The number of genders cannot be counted"
The longtime confidante of Merkel was also open to the question of so-called gender diversity. “In addition to the classic genders, there are also the diverse ones,” Braun pointed out. This generic term would again include “very, very many” gender identities. "Well, I don't think you can count that conclusively," he emphasized.

At the weekend, the CDU district association Gießen had put Braun as a candidate for the office of party chairman. In addition to him, the CDU foreign politician Norbert Röttgen had previously declared his candidacy for the party chairmanship.
