Denmark Immigration Minister Inger Støjberg: Islamic way of life is the problem

‘Imams do not want to divorce us. I know someone who is Danish divorce, who has been around asking all imams. But they do not want to divorce her, because the man does not want to. ‘

That was the word when I visited a group of refugee and immigrant women in Copenhagen’s Northwest Quarter a couple of weeks ago.

Others talked about violent husbands, whom despite the violence remained, because the women thought they would lose the right to see their children if they were divorced. Some reported about multiculturalism, detention and resettlement travel in obscured family members in their countries of origin. Everything was done via interpreter. This is despite the fact that some of them have lived in Denmark for a very many years.

It was parallel society in 2018 in full bloom on an ordinary Wednesday afternoon. This time, personified by a group of women who are held in an iron grip by their men and the Imams via a medieval way of life, taken literally out of the scriptures of the Koran, with the resulting total rejection of modern, liberal life. In other words, they live in accordance with the Sharia law, and they have not chosen themselves.

They are forced by the Imams and their men.

It is far from new that we have parallel societies in Denmark and I see no other way than to pursue a very strict immigration policy that limits the influx so that the number of people who come with a completely foreign perception of religion and life is limited.

At the same time, it is absolutely necessary to insist that you must comply with our rules and take our lives as long as you live in Denmark. This applies both in the big and the small, so you do not make special demands because you are a Muslim.

That you fully respect our freedom values ​​and do not question or even verbalize the right to draw caricature drawings of the Prophet or criticize Islam or other religions for that matter.

Of course, it also includes the fact that you fully accept equality, so that you do not force your children into marriages or send their daughters on resettlement trips to fortified family members in their home country.

When we discuss these issues in today’s Denmark, it is not because people with a mess in Buddhism, Judaism or Hinduism question neither religious freedom, freedom of expression nor equality. It is largely the practice of Islam that is the problem.

We can not make legislation that makes people different. This means that in order to safeguard us from the immigration of Muslims who do not want our values, we have to pursue a strict immigration policy, which unfortunately sometimes affects foreigners who do not hurt a cat.

Fortunately there are many Muslims in Denmark who want to live a pragmatic life and who love freedoms. I personally know a number of them. But it does not change the fact that the majority of the problems we face are cohesion and pressure on freedom created by the practice of Islam.
