In his speech, Ahmad stressed the importance of addressing anti-Semitism in the Muslim community in Germany, following the recent attack on Rabbi Alter.
"We need to stop being scared to talk about these controversial issues...My own experience countering anti-Semitism, radicalization and gender inequality has consistently proven that it’s absolutely possible to reach vulnerable youth."
"Establishing trust is critical to this process. We have to conduct a dialogue on their level. We need to offer role models from within their own communities. We need to introduce vulnerable youth to people who approach these controversial issues differently, more openly, and without prejudice or fear. As Muslims, we also have a responsibility to establish new, honest, inner-Islamic debate about these topics."
