Austrian Muslim teacher’s license revoked

Austria‘s Islamic Community says it has revoked the license of a Muslim religion teacher who allegedly gave his students anti-Semitic pamphlets.

The announcement Friday came a day after the Islamic Community suspended the man for allegedly encouraging students to abstain from “Jewish businesses”.

The teacher in question taught at a regular school in the Austrian capital but has not been identified. He was banned by the Vienna School Authority on Thursday. An Islamic Community spokeswoman said the teacher and officials mutually agreed it was best to revoke the license.

In Austria, official religious authorities license religion teachers.
