German police have carried out a large-scale operation targeting Islamists in 60 cities, including Berlin, the German Interior Ministry (Bundesministeriums des Innern) reported on November 15.
Mmedia reports say that raids have targeted offices and mosques linked to the Islamist missionary network ‘The True Religion,’ (banned November 15 morning) which is known to have been distributing free Korans at infostands throughout Germany.
The ministry announced that authorities believe the group has acted in violation of Germany’s constitution and incited hatred. The so-called “missionary network” advocates armed jihad and supports terrorist organizations.
In total, some 190 mosques, offices, and apartments associated with the group have allegedly been searched in 10 federal states.
