Yesterday, when pictures of German President Joachim Gauck’s visit were broadcasted on the news programmes, we caught our breath for more than just a moment. He perkily took the hand of a Muslim girl dressed with a headscarf (photo) and dragged her towards the exhibits. Yet, he should have known that, according to an Islamic judgement, a Muslim woman must not hold the hand of a stranger! In an act of pretended open-mindedness and delight in the Islamic enrichment, Gauck took her by surprise and got her into a very unpleasant situation. People don’t do that Mr President, moreover, it doesn’t express cultural sensitivity for our fellow Muslim master race -err- citizens.
On November 28th 2013, Germany’s president Joachim Gauck visited the Centre for Islamic Theology (ZIT) in the German city of Muenster.
