A German school has asked its teachers to report Muslim students who are found praying, with authorities branding the practice “provocative.” The move sparked debate on social media – some users say the country lies about religious freedom.

The incident took place in Gymnasium Johannes Rau in the city of Wuppertal, North Rhine-Westphalia state, and was first reported by Der Westen newspaper.

The staff was asked to “identify the names” and “report” them to the school administration. The letter also states that such students should get a “friendly reminder” that it’s not permitted and that breaches will be reported.

The measure was later confirmed by government authority in the state capital of Düsseldorf, Der Westen reported.
