Germany mulls introducing ‘mosque tax’ for Muslims

This should be good. How will the millions of Muslims who are now living in Germany respond to this proposal? The kuffar demanding jizya from the Muslims? How dare they? Takbir! No one gets to demand money for nothing except the Muslims — the payment of the jizya is a sign of submission specified in the Quran (9:29).

Mosque founder supports tax

In the absence of a similar tax, mosques in Germany are reliant upon donations, raising concerns about possible financing by foreign organizations and governments, which has sometimes prompted questions about the promotion of fundamentalist ideologies. For example, there has been growing concern about the influence of the Turkish-Islamic Union for Religious Affairs (DITIB), an arm of the Turkish government based in Germany.

Officials estimates report that there are between 4.4 and 4.7 million Muslims living in Germany, but those figures include people whose families are Muslim by tradition and the number of practicing Muslims could be much lower.

A lawmaker from Germany’s other ruling party, the center-left Social Democrats (SPD), agreed that a mosque tax could help Islam in Germany become more independent. The SPD’s domestic policy chief Burkhard Lischka agreed that it was a topic “worthy of discussion.”…
