    German court rules Muslim who refused to shake woman's hand should not receive citize





    German court rules Muslim who refused to shake woman's hand should not receive citizenship

    Two people shake hands - Sirinarth Mekvorawuth / EyeEmA German court has ruled that a Muslim doctor should not be granted citizenship after he refused to shake hands with the woman presenting him with his naturalisation certificate.

    According to the administrative court of Baden-Württemberg, the Lebanese man had forgone his right to become German because his refusal to shake the bureaucrat’s hand was evidence that he saw her as “posing the threat of sexual seduction.”

    The judges explained that obtaining German citizenship was dependent on the applicant being able to demonstrate that he lived according to the values set out in the German constitution, which enshrines sexual equality.

    A handshake “has a long tradition of signalling greeting or saying farewell that exists irrespective of social status or sex,” the ruling stated. “Although there are other recognised greetings in Germany, such as kissing or a 'high five,' the handshake holds a special importance” because of its formal use in the completion of a business transaction and as a signal of agreement in certain courts, the judges added.

    The incident occurred in 2015 at a citizenship ceremony that was supposed to be a simple formality after the man had obtained the highest possible score in his citizenship test, an exam that probes how well immigrants understand German history and its democratic values.

    When the female bureaucrat offered her hand and he declined to shake it, she refused to hand over his certificate. The 40-year-old has an otherwise impeccable record of successful integration. He moved to the country as a language student in 2002 before qualifying as a doctor and then working his way up to the position of consultant physician at a hospital in southern Germany.

    To support his case, he said that he had made a promise to his wife never to touch another woman. But the court remained unswayed, describing his actions as “fundamentalist” and reflective of “a Salafist worldview.”

    The judges were also unimpressed by a statement he made to the effect that he would not shake anyone’s hand in the future, be it a male or a female.

    Making clear that the handshake would outlive current pandemic restrictions, the judges said that the man would have to use the gesture in the future in order to carry out important societal functions. It added that it saw his concession on not shaking anyone’s hand as a purely tactical move.

    The man now has the chance to dispute the ruling at the federal level, his last chance to have the decision overturned.

    Hand shaking has proven to be one of the most sensitive issues in the integration of a growing number of conservative Muslim migrants in Europe. Authorities in several countries now penalise those who refuse to use the gesture.

    In 2016 education authorities in Switzerland imposed fines up to €4,000 (£3,600) on parents who refused to shake teachers’ hands, arguing that teachers have a right to demand a handshake.

    Danish law has required people to shake the hands of administrators at citizenship ceremonies since early 2019. Critics there have called it “un-Danish” to force a local custom on someone, rather than encouraging them to conform.

    The dispute over handshakes in Germany comes after a school in Berlin was forced to apologise after one of its teachers called an imam “a misogynist” when he failed to shake her hand in 2016.

    BRAVO!

    Send him back to Lebanon. He can be a Doctor there.

    And we must not allow any Hijab in our countries! It is suppression of women, it is NOT what we want in our country.

    These men do not respect women, they do not respect our dogs or animals either.

    They do not assimilate to our culture, we will not change to their ways. Do not come here.

    How do they treat women in Hospitals?
