European Commission calls on Denmark to discuss “anti-Islam”


On Thursday, the European Commission called on the Danish government to address the problems of Islamophobia and racism in the country.


This came in a report of the European Commission against Racism and Intolerance, in which it referred to racism against minorities and immigrants in Denmark.

The Commission expressed its concern that some Danish parties described immigrants, especially Muslims, as a “threat to Danish culture.”

It also criticized a Danish government’s plan to house Westerners and non-Westerners in separate neighborhoods.

It added that the government’s forcible transfer of many immigrant families from some neighborhoods to other neighborhoods led to the unfairness of these families’ rights.


It added that hate speech and this type of decisions harmful to immigrants lead to increasing pressures on minorities and immigrants.

The commission called on the Danish government to prepare a national plan to combat racism and Islamophobia.
