“Nuralislam” is dissolved: Proximity to IS

According to a ministry spokesman, the Interior Ministry of North Rhine-Westphalia had banned the association on Thursday. The association is directed against the constitution and the “ideas of international understanding,” according to the announcement by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia in the Federal Gazette.

As NRW Interior Minister Herbert Reul announced on Thursday, the officials of the association are close to the Islamic State (IS) jihadist militia and represent a radical Salafist ideology.

The purpose of the association was therefore to pass on misanthropic ideas to members and visitors of its mosque and to recruit “personnel for terror”. “In sermons, infidels and people of other faiths were repeatedly hounded,” said Reul. A Salafist preacher known throughout Europe was invited to the mosque several times. An Islamist who had direct contact with Breitscheidplatz assassin Anis Amri also went in and out there.

Individual visitors have already become radicalized. The association organized the departure of at least seven men to IS combat zones in Syria and Iraq and thus “supplied new recruits from Germany”. “All these activities are incompatible with the values ​​of our Basic Law and endanger public safety to a large extent,” said the Minister of the Interior. “What we closed today is a greenhouse of Islamism.”

According to the announcement, the association will be dissolved. He is therefore prohibited from any activity. It is also forbidden to form substitute organizations or to continue existing organizations as substitute organisations. Nuralislam’s websites on Facebook, Youtube and its own homepage are also banned.
