Chapter Summary

This chapter provides an up-to-date account of the situation of Muslims in Hungary. Hungary is a secular republic. The role of its few Muslims in public life has been limited in practice to their leaders' declarations on matters such as international terrorism, perceived Islamophobia, the Muhammad cartoons and inter-religious dialogue. There are three registered Islamic religious communities, none of which has more than a few hundred active members. Apart from the few Ottoman historical buildings, there are no purpose- built mosques in Hungary, only ambitious projects envisioning an Islamic centre in the capital.Magyar Iszlám Közösség (MIK), Magyarországi Muszlimok Egyháza (MME) and Iszlám Egyház (IE) offer lectures on Islam and free Arabic language courses. There are no Muslim institutions of higher education. Public interest in Islam is limited.

Keywords: Islamic religious communities; mosques; Muslims in Hungary
