Denmark plans Muslim ‘hate preacher’ blacklist

The plan would entail establishing a list of foreign imams and other religious leaders who have encouraged or promoted terrorism or expressed ‘anti-democratic’ opinions. Those on the list would be denied visas and immediately turned away if they attempt to pass through Danish border control stations.

The blacklist plan was first floated in March when Prime Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen vowed to crack down on religious speech that “undermines Danish legislation” and preachers who “don’t respect the basic norms in our society”.
