Volker Kauder, a parliamentary group leader of the Christian Democratic Union of Germany (CDU), believes that it is quite permissible to keep control over Muslim children as part of the comprehensive fight against terrorism, REGNUM News Agency reports on June 8 with reference to Der Focus, a German weekly news magazine.
Thus, Volker Kauder (CDU) supports a demand of Joachim Herrmann (Christian Social Union in Bavaria, CSU), the Bavarian Minister of Internal Affairs, who initiated the idea to monitor Muslim children.
Kauder says, that if Muslim children become police suspects, then they should be monitored. This is also for the benefit for the children, since terrorists can misguide children and abuse a child’s credulity.
Kauder stresses that he is in agreement with Theresa May, British Prime Minister, who does not exclude the possibility of limiting human rights in order to combat terrorism.
Kauder also fully agrees with Theresa May in saying that every state has the right to react to any threats in a reasonable way.
It will be known later, whether the initiative to introduce control over Muslim children, will be considered only by the parliament of the federal state of Bavaria, or it will be submitted to the Bundestag as well.
The so-called “Patriot Act” was adopted by the United States after the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001, to intercept and obstruct terrorism. This document significantly expanded the authorization for intelligence agencies to perform roving wiretaps, to search business records, and to collect phone data on the country’s citizens.
Recently, a number of violent terrorist attacks have shaken major capitals and large cities in Europe. Information about terrorist assaults and violence in Europe fills the news scrolls of the global media. Meanwhile, some European politicians offer methods of combating the terrorist threat, similar to those which have been adopted in the United States. However, such ways to combat terrorism may as well be regarded as violating human rights and freedoms.
