Plans for Islamic Shopping Centre

09./ 12./ 13.01.2012

Noura A. , a Muslim business woman in Hamburg/ Harburg, is planning on opening the first “Islamic Shopping Center” in a vacant property that was previously used as a restaurant. She is already advertising for business partners who want to rent parts of the property – and focuses exclusively on Muslim partners. Her plans have already caused debate amongst Hamburg’s politicians and business people, who feel that an exclusively Islamic shopping centre is not supporting the integration process. Furthermore, it needs to be checked whether Noura A.’s plans constitute a breach of the anti-discrimination law.
