The demonization of Islamic reformers: woman who starts liberal mosque in Berlin gets hatred and threats from Muslims

Liberal Mosque Opens In Berlin

BERLIN, GERMANY – JUNE 16: Muslims attend Friday prayers during the opening of the Ibn-Rushd-Goethe Mosque on June 16, 2017 in Berlin, Germany. The new, liberal mosque, co-founded by human-rights activist Seyran Ates and located for the next year in space rented in a Protestant church, seeks to bring together liberally-oriented Muslims from different strains of Islam. In conrast to traditional mosques male and female worshippers will attend services together and homosexual Muslims are welcome. The mosque derives its name from the 11th-century Muslim philosopher Ibn-Rushd and German writer, dramatist and scientist Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. (Photo by Sean Gallup/Getty Images)
