From Islamophobe to Muslim: German politician converts to Islam





In an ironic turn of events, a far-right German politician who was publicly critical and in opposition of Islam has reportedly become Muslim himself.

Arthur Wagner, a former leading member of a far-right party that campaigned against Muslims has recently left the party and converted to Islam.


Wagner was part of the Alternative für Deutschland (AfD) party, an anti-immigration group that believes "Islam is not a part of Germany" and has called for banning the Islamic call to prayer. 

He is believed to have become the first AfD member to convert to Islam after joining the party.

"It is a private matter," Wagner told national newspaper Der Tagesspiegel.

According to Vox, German media reports he has been spending his free time volunteering with Muslim immigrants, which might have changed the way he views Islam.

Wagner, who was previously a part of the Christian Democrats and joined the AfD in 2015, has thus become among the 1.9 percent of the German population that identifies as Muslim.
