  • 1st December 2010 : Registering a second Muslim community

An application by an Alevi association to be registered as a faith community was rejected on the grounds that there was already one recognised Islamic community in Austria ; the Constitutional Court stated that neither Article 15 of the Constitution (RGBl. 1867/142), nor Article 9 of the European Convention of Human Rights made it possible to conclude that only one Islamic community could exist in law. Article I §1 of the law on Islam and the corresponding order also confirm this interpretation, which conforms with the Constitution (VfGH 1.12.2010, B 1214/09).
