Norwegian Muslims have called on the country’s integration minister to step down after she said that immigrants should adapt to a culture of pork, alcohol and no face-veils.
Sylvi Listhaug, a minister appointed by the anti-immigrant Progress Party, caused outrage on Monday when she made an incendiary post on the eve of an national integration conference.
“I think those who come to Norway need to adapt to our society. Here we eat pork, drink alcohol and show our face. You must abide by the values, laws and regulations that are in Norway when you come here,” she wrote in a post that was ‘liked’ by 20,000 people.
Saudi Arabia expects people to conform to its way when in Saudi Arabia. Mind you, they have such double standards, financing the construction of mosques throughout the western world whilst not allowing a single church or synagogue in Saudi Arabia.
Norway’s government, a coalition between the centre-right Conservative Party and the populist anti-immigrant Progress Party, has been coming down hard on Norwegian Muslims over the last week.
Prime Minister Erna Solberg said in an interview connected with Tuesday’s conference that she personally would not employ someone wearing the Islamic Niqab face veil.
