SGP wants to get rid of every day "Allahu akbar" from minarets

The SGP wants to put an end to prayer calls that do mosques. By allowing the appeals, the government is "Islamization of the public sphere 'in the hand, standing in the election which presents the party in two weeks. ,, That is amiss, "says party leader Kees van der Staaij.

According to the SGP there is local resistance to the calls, but municipalities can not do anything. Calls for the profession of religion or belief are protected constitutionally. Van der Staaij do not want to tamper with the Constitution, but wants to curb the prayer calls by adjusting the Wet public demonstrations in 1988. ,, It is time that the House takes action, "Van der Staaij.

Some mosques only call for Friday prayers, others every day or several times a day a call where the greatness of Allah is announced. The call "Allahu akbar", according to the party now, however, also associated with terrorism and therefore perceived as intimidating. ,, That we hear back. Unlike the Middle East, the West has no tradition to sprinkle creeds street. The government offers more space than we have right here. "

Clanging bells

Also too early and too hard denominated church bells complained. The SGP is not afraid that she and her opposition to the prayer call also opens the door to opposition clanging bells. ,, There is a fundamental difference between prayer calls from mosques and church bells. Previously stated that it fits the Dutch cultural pattern, regardless of religion. "

The PVV ordained earlier parliamentary questions about; local departments called for a ban. In 2009, the SGP tried a motion to reduce the construction of mega mosques with minarets. That did not make it.
