3. Islam party in Belgium wants to create an Islamic State and separate men and women
For the second time in 6 years the “Islam” party will participate in Belgium’s municipal elections. The party wants to create an Islamic State and separate men and women in public transport, Belgian newspaper HLN reports.
“Our goal is a 100% Islamic State, but we don’t mean we want to oblige the headscarf,” the party’s founder Redouane Ahrouch says. “By establishing Sharia law we want to follow the way of the prophet and the Quran”, he adds.
The Islam party clearly focuses on conservative Muslims and already has two members elected as a result of the 2012 elections. This year it will participate in 28 municipalities.
Ahrouch says he wants to reach the party’s goals “without violating the Belgian constitution”. It is unclear how he wants to do this as the party wants to separate men and women in public transport.
Belgium’s state secretary of immigration, Theo Francken, says the party “disgusts” him. On Twitter he writes:
“A political party called ‘ISLAM’ is growing in Belgium. They openly call for the introduction of Shariah law. The Shariah is in violation with human rights. Shariah parties therefore are antidemocratic. These are wolves in sheep’s clothing.” And,
“Classic example of taqqiya: these Islamists want to install a ‘100% Islamic state’ in our country, but ‘without touching the constitution’. Impossible lies. I wonder what their off camera campaign looks like.”
