Time for a Monty Python film about Islam says German Green leader

The Green Party chairman Cem Özdemir is hoping for a Monty Python film about Islam. At the first "Tolerance Summit Conference" on Thursday in Stuttgart, Özdemir said the Islamic world which in principle is full of humourmust not be pushed into the background by authoritarian interpretation.

In the movie "Life of Brian" by the British comedy troupe Monty Python in 1979, a man who is living at the same time as Jesus is confused against his will with the Messiah and crucified in the end.

In his speech, Özdemir called the Basic Law of the Federal Republic a positive framework for a pluralistic religious society.

Religious freedom should find only there limits where other fundamental rights may be restricted. According to the Green leader, all religions are free to demonstrate peacefully for their goals and aspirations. It is important that there should be no attempt to impose ideas by force.
