Swimming Pools Only for Muslims?
Separation by Gender and Religion
November 20, 2019
“I am a German patriot, perhaps more patriotic than some who attack me,” says Abdullah Zeran, who wants to build a purely Muslim swimming pool in Frankfurt.
The Frankfurt entrepreneur Abdullah Zeran wants to build a swimming pool in the Main metropolis just for Muslims, with gender-segregated swimming. He has currently collected €3 million in start-up capital for this project.
The 38-year-old does not justify his building project religiously, but purely entrepreneurially: “I have done market research and found swimming facilities for strict Muslims will fill a gap in the market.” According to him, the primary reason is the requirement for swimming lessons in German schools and that millions of Muslims living in Germany find it unreasonable to have to accept the lack of gender segregation in normal German swimming pools when swimming at school. “Muslim parents have a problem when the children in the class have swimming lessons together,” as stated in the regional newspaper HNA. The man being quoted has an Islamic beard, runs a soap factory and is a custodian for a German administrative bodies.
Abdullah Zeran also already has his eye on a plot of land. It is located on the Griesheimer Eichenstraße in Frankfurt am Main.
The designated building contractor looks like a typical Middle Easterner, but emphasises: “I am German. […] I have a German passport only. I am a German patriot, perhaps more patriotic than some who attack me.” He has recognised a problem to which he wants to make his contribution.
Heinz-Peter Meininger, chairman of the teachers’ union, agrees with him. Spiegel Online quotes Meininger as saying that, concerning swimming lessons, there is “probably more conflict about this topic in Germany than is discussed in public.”
Many Muslim pupils, especially girls, don’t learn to swim. Their parents report them sick regularly in order to avoid their taking part in school swimming lessons.
