Muslim refugees who have reached Germany persecute the Christian refugees who are seeking safety on the German soil.
According to media reports, Europe is grappling with migrant crisis these days, as thousands upon thousands migrants are pouring into Europe via various routes. Germany remains a favourite destination as the German chancellor Angela Merkel had announced favour to settle these refugees.
It is worth mentioning that majority of the refugees who have or are pouring into Europe are Muslims, however a trifle of Christian refugees could also be found among them.
Horrible reports are being circulated that the Muslim refugees even drowned the Christian refugees among them who had taken the sea route in order to reach Europe. However, those Christian refugees who have made it to Europe, are now facing harassment and persecution at the hands of Muslim refugees.
There are reports of several incidents when Muslim refugees have bashed Christian refugees in refugee camps in Germany. One of such incident was that of a Christian refugee Said. In pursuit of a safe life in Germany, Said crossed Turkey on foot. However, life has become harder fro him in Germany.
While recalling his past life in Iran, Said narrated, “In Iran, the Revolutionary Guards have arrested my brother in a house church. I fled the Iranian secret police, because I thought in Germany I can finally freely live by my religion. But in the home for asylum seekers, I can’t even openly admit that I am a Christian. Devout Muslims teach there the view: Where we are, there is the Sharia, there is our law.”
Said is now living in an accommodation provided by the German authorities to the refugees where there are generally Syrian refugees. He told that among the refugees who are in the house are generally staunch Sunni Muslims. “They wake me before dawn during Ramadan and say that I should eat before the sun comes up. If I refuse, they say, I’m a, kuffar , (an unbeliever). They spit at me, they treat me like an animal. And threaten to kill me.” He goes on to say that when he tried to complain to the Security Service, they officials did not take interest in his problems. “They are also all Muslims.”
Pastor Gottfried Martens reveals, “Above all, Christians who have converted from Islam have to suffer as a minority. And they ask the question: Will we have to hide ourselves as Christians in the future in this country?”
In Hemer, which is a town in Germany there were reports that the Algerian asylum seekers attacked an Eritrean Christian couple. Both the Christians were wearing cross around their necks, so could be easily identified as Christians. The Muslim refugees struck the Eritreans with a glass bottle.
A Syrian Christian refugee who is living among the Muslim refugees in Germany reported that “They shout Quranic verses. These are words that shouts the IS before they cut off people’s heads. I can not stay here. I am a Christian.”
At another occasion a Christian family who has fled from ISIS in Iraq reported to journalists that Muslim extremists harassed them while they live among them in a refugee camp in Germany. “They yelled at my wife and beat my child. They say, We will kill you and drink your blood.”
On the other hand, this issue has been verified by Max Klingberg from the International Society for Human Rights. He has been working to aid and facilitate refugees since fifteen years. He is of the opinion that this anti-Christian violence will continue to grow.
“Often the aggressors are Afghans or Pakistanis who are often more Islamist than many Syrians and Iraqis. We must rid ourselves of the illusion that all those who arrive here, are human rights activists. Among the new arrivals is a not small number at least as intense as the Muslim Brotherhood.”
In this regard, Simon Jacob from the Central Council of the Eastern Christians revealed that there were many stories when Christian refugees were either harassed or persecuted by Muslim refugees in the refugee camps. “I know of a lot of reports of Christian refugees who are under attack. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The number of unreported cases is high.”
