“Because the Christian faith changed the way of thinking, the world view. If someone told me that at night he can sleep again or an old enemy could forgive, then I know that in his heart he is a Christian,” he said.
Although many refugees are seeking protection at German refugee camps, a major report by watchdog group Open Doors earlier in May found out that there have been over 300 incidents of Christians being physically or sexually assaulted by Muslims in refugee camps in the country.
A number of such incidents have been downplayed by German authorities who are fearful of growing anti-immigration sentiments in the country, the report alleged, however.
“Despite increased reports about this problem by the media, charities, human rights organizations, church leaders and Christian organizations, German authorities and politicians have hardly ever launched an investigation,” the watchdog group warned.
“Instead, we believe that incidents are deliberately downplayed and even covered up. During confidential discussions with researchers from Open Doors, it has become known that even in police stations, religiously motivated attacks on Christian refugees are not documented as such,” it added.
