The success of Germany’s multiculturalism policy has been questioned after statistics from the German Federal Police Office appear to show that a traditional Christian state is no longer a safe place for the believers.

The number of crimes targeting Christians in Germany reached nearly 100 cases last year, according to a report by the Federal Police Office. These stats have been gathered for the first time after a demand by the country’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and its head Thomas de Maizière after several notorious cases.

A homicide, grave and minor bodily injuries and arson are listed in the dossier. In a quarter of attacks churches and Christian symbols were hit and damaged. The murder case in the report is the one in Bavarian Prien am Chiemsee in April 2017, where a failed Afghan asylum seeker is said to have stabbed to death an Afghan Christian convert woman in front of her children.
