Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an up-to-date account of the situation of Muslims in Czech Republic. The territory that is today's Czech Republic has never been under direct Islamic influence or rule so there is no indigenous Czech Muslim community. Muslims were relatively more successful than non-Muslim asylum seekers in being granted asylum, the highest numbers of successful applicants being Afghans, Iraqis, Iranians and Kazakhs. Most Czech Muslim organisations are registered with the Ministry of Culture as cultural or social organisations, which does not entitle them to any public funding. The Headquarters of the Muslim Religious Communities is a Muslim umbrella organisation. The Muslim Union is another Muslim organisation in Brno, whose website is a good source of information. Courses in Islam and Arabic are organised in the two Czech mosques by the Islamic Foundation in Prague and the Islamic Foundation in Brno.
