Marcel Bauersfeld, a 37-year old German citizen, has been taken into police custody for protesting against the Islamic call to prayer (Adhan) blasted from anti-integration Turkish-controlled (DITIB) Mosques in Germany. The Adhan has been blasted by amplifiers daily throughout the town of Herford since mid-June, when their socialist Mayor, Tim Kähler, bypassed the city council and granted mosques his approval.
Mr. Bauersfeld has no criminal record. He has been demonstrating outside Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s mosques for the past four weeks. After his cowbell was confiscated by German police, Bauersfeld took a spoon and a pot to protest the intrusive noise amplified from speakers fives time a day, seven days a week. According to the Germany’s public prosecutor’s office, Bauersfeld’s protest is considered a disruption to the “practice of religion.”
Bauersfeld has studied the Quran in detail and made it clear in an interview with German newspaper Westfalen-Blatt, “I am neither left- nor right-wing. Nor do I have anything against other cultural practices. The only thing that bothers me is the muezzin call, which in my view is nothing more than calling out a Caliphate. I don’t want to have Sharia law here.’
According to former Muslim Rdivan Aydemir, the Adhan is intended to show power and control over a country. Aydemir, who was born to a Turkish family in Germany, explained that the Adhan declares all religions except Islam to be false and is a symbol and declaration of Islamic supremacy.

As previously reported by RAIR Foundation USA, Erdoğan and his loyalists in Germany successfully exploited the Chinese coronavirus lockdown to justify broadcasting the Islamic call to prayer from their hundreds of mosques. This was just one more victory in Erdoğan’s plan to Islamize Europe, seize control and ultimately re-establish the Ottoman Empire.
The Turkish Islamic Union for Religious Affairs (DITIB) is an umbrella organization that controls more than 900 mosques in Germany. DITIB is nothing more than an arm of the Turkish state. Turkish imams are sent to Germany’s DITIB mosques to influence their congregants not to assimilate into Europe and to push Erdoğan’s agenda.
Like Marcel Bauersfeld, Germany’s conservative Afd political party is requesting the city of Herford to immediately revoke the approval of the Islamic call to prayer, adding, “to allow this for a mosque that belongs to the highly controversial and anti-integration DITIB is not an act of tolerance.”
The Afd proudly supports Bauersfeld’s fight and voiced their anger about his arrest, “It is the right of every citizen to demonstrate against the reputation of the Adhan.” Furthermore, by arresting Bauersfeld, the German government is deciding what policies Germans have a right to protest, and which ones they do not. This is anathema to a free and democratic society.
