The Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has criticized the search of a Berlin mosque by the police as “Islamophobic”. The police operation on Wednesday “completely disregarded religious freedom and testifies to an Islamophobia and racism that send Europe back to the Dark Ages,” said the head of state on Twitter.

Unauthorized payment to the mosque’s account

The Berlin police searched a mosque and several other buildings in the Kreuzberg district on Wednesday for suspected subsidy fraud with state corona aid. The suspicion was directed against three accused, the damage amounts to 70,000 euros. According to the investigators, the mosque was searched because in at least one case an unauthorized payment was made to their account.

On Thursday the Turkish Foreign Ministry had accused the Berlin police of “discriminatory, disproportionate and biased behavior” because of the search.
