The association prohibition applies according to the Ministry of Information to the Salafist groups "DawaFFM" and "Islamic Audios". In addition, the group "An-Nussrah" was banned as part of the organization "Millatu Ibrahim" dissolved in June 2012 .
"Salafism, as it is represented by the now banned associations is incompatible with our liberal democratic order," said Friedrich. The banned groups sought "in aggressive-combative way to change in our society in which democracy will be replaced by a salafist system and the rule of law by the Sharia".
Already in the summer of 2012, Frederick had forbidden the Salafist group "Millatu Ibrahim" and initiated an investigation into "DawaFFM" . According to the Information Ministry, ample evidence has been gathered. In the investigation, "important insights were obtained into the anti-constitutional activities and well-planned approach of Salafist organizations in Germany", the ministry said.
