germany is exploring the idea of a so-called mosque attack say it would be loosely based on the existing tax which funds catholic and protestant churches here in germany the idea is that levying a charge on practicing muslims here would make german mosques less dependent on financial support from abroad lawmakers from gemini's ruling center left center right coalition want to end foreign financing of jam and mosques like this one to do that they're proposing a so-called mosque tox. a society i believe it's important that mosque associations in germany and islam are independent of foreign influence from currently the fact is that most of the money comes from foreign states and that's not good for our society or islam in germany beat of. no foot in islamic law which went towards the t.v. . the muslim council of germany is open to the idea based on the islamic teaching

of giving for the needy. for example you could indicate on your tax return which institution you want to pay this mosque tax to and if you sign up for it you can make the appropriate contribution. or going to some courts come in and. talk gemini already has a church tax which could be applied to mosques as well. if people are really serious about securing more influence in muslim communities in germany then they're going to have to recognize them as legal entities under law that's what's required and should be the first step. that the ministry is no planning to discuss the idea with geminis muslim communities. for more on the story we're joined now in the studio by saying she founded a liberal lost in berlin where men and women pray together and women can also lead prayers as in a mom she also initiated the idea of the so-called mosque tax thank you for being

with us this morning saturday why do you think the funding model model in germany for mosques should be changed should be changed because they have a huge influence from outside from foreign countries what kind of islam is educated in germany this influence has to be kept the influence is controlling all the education this controlling the mosques controlling the way how they teach islam here now we have is that this is bad because we have this influence mate that muslims a lot of muslims are not able to integrate themselves or their families here in germany no europe we have all this problems all over europe it's not only a german problem we have a big influence here in germany especially from turkey or from the muslim brotherhood so we have to cut this influence to give the muslims a chant
9:12 am
a chance to have to call germany as their home country and to sing about new ways of education this is the motivation behind the idea of the text the motivation is to cut influence from outside when it comes to the imaam education and to teach them already that comes to the prayers in the mosque. so looking at germany's muslim community as a whole it's sizable is there a lot of support for reforming the way most are funded within that community as a whole i think a lot of muslims are not happy in the situation what we have. when we talk about islam so we talk mostly about weiland or terrorists so there is a need that we have to change the spic chirps that some reason why in my opinion
9:13 am
people start singing about new models we have to start to sing about the integration of islam in germany in another way than the as associations did in the past they say to change to change the way muslims are perceived in germany is that what you're referring to most things one one side. we have to change and the way how people look to islam and how the muslims themselves have influence here they have to stand up themselves they have to take care about their own religion here in germany so muslims in germany should do something for islam in germany so do you see a consensus building long term for for your position on this how do you go about convincing germany's more conservative muslim community to support your idea the first step should be and to cut the financial influence and the next step would be to bring
9:14 am
together the purity of islam on one table and discuss about something like a text we cannot take the idea of the church text what we have in germany know and put it on islam this is not possible so we should take it as saying about new models and my opinion would be oh my four will be talking about a kind of you know we have the five pillars of islam and one of the pillar is the social text so we should name it different maybe then the public can understand it better so thank you so much for talking with us today pleasure. and just for we go a reminder of the top story that we're following for you here today on t.v. news indonesia has raised the alert level from the erupting. and warned aircraft to steer clear of the volcanic area it's also told the public to stay away from the
