“Seyran Ates has gotten used to the hundreds of threats she receives daily.
“She is the devil,” they say. “She should burn in hell.”
Since founding a liberal and controversial mosque in Berlin last month, Ates has been constantly targeted by those who have a strict interpretation of Islamic law. She vows to fight for religious freedom and challenge radical Islam – even if it puts her life in danger.
German authorities are taking the threats seriously. Six policemen guard her around the clock.”
