Norway: Christian Democratic candidate wants a mosque to increase immigration
Via Utrop (Norwegian):
Trude Brosvik, head of Christian Democratic KrF party in the Sogn og Fjordane county, thinks a mosque will contribute positively to the county. "Like it is important for Christians to have a Church, it's also important for Muslims to have a mosque here in the county. A mosque will be an advantage if we're to take in immigrants," Brosvik told the Firda newspaper.
The Frp party in the county previously announced a new goal to increase the number of residents by 13,000 by 2020.
"KrF is concerned by freedom of religion, and we have a lot of understanding for having people practice their faith. Therefore we principally support that also Muslims should get to build their own hall of assembly," says Brosvik.
Frank Willy Djupvik, Frp's candidate in the county elections, told Firda that Muslims should be allowed to build mosques in a country with freedom of religion, but within the laws and not by using county money.
