Four hundred policemen, including the Special Deployment Commandos (SEK), the specialized operation armed response units of the German state police, raided the Salafi Mosque and 8 houses of members of the DIK (German Islam Conference) Steering Committee in Hildesheim, the Bild German information website reported on Wednesday evening.

“The DIK in Hildesheim is a national hot spot of radical Salafism,” the German interior minister, Boris Pistorius, said in a press release. “After several months of preparation, we have taken an important step with searches conducted today to ban the association.”

According to the security authorities, the DIK radicalizes Muslims and motivates them to participate in the jihad in the combat areas. Sermons, seminars and lectures of the association also calls to ‘hate the infidels’, Pistorius said. The police actions are currently ongoing.
