The representatives of Austria’s large religious communities – Catholic, Evangelical-Lutheran, Orthodox, Islamic, and Jewish – have come out in support of the initiative “Against Injustice.” The initiative opposes the practice of taking underage asylum seekers into custody, especially before expelling them from the country. The head of the Shura Council of the Islamic Religious Community in Austria (IGGiÖ) Fuat Sanac stated that it is “unacceptable for children to have to suffer for the mistakes of the authorities.”
