Shoaib Sultan and Sunaid Koplica highlight several interesting moments in The debate on prayer in Dagbladet on 14.10.2019.
I think that’s cool That Sultan and Kopelica agree with the FrP that the Fjell Mosque in Drammen should abide by the agreements they have made with the municipality, and refrain from public prayer calls. Moreover, they highlight an important perspective in that the call to prayer can now be done using applications, and that the need for public prayer calls no longer exists.
(FrP) should act hypocritically Because we want to ban prayer, I don’t admit myself at all. Norway is a country with more than 1,000 years of Christian traditions. Integration is about the adaptation of immigrants to the society into which they move, not the other way around.
Many Norwegians fled religious extremists such as the Taliban or the Islamic State. They will not have to hear prayers in public now that they have come to Norway. In contrast to the neutral sound of church bells, Muslim prayer is pure preaching that, among other things, publicly declares that “there is no god but God.”
It is a fact that There are thousands of religions and sects in the world. If one thinks that the Church has no special place in Norway, and allows all religions to call to prayer, loudly throughout the counties and to preach, that would have problematic consequences. The result will be annoying noise problems for residents, especially in big cities.
FrP are defenders of files Our constitutional freedom is in religion, but that does not mean that an individual should have the right to do whatever he wants in the public sphere. People should be allowed to believe what they want, but that does not mean that you can do whatever you want under the guise of religious freedom. Many acts such as female circumcision, forced marriage and social control are, and should be, illegal in Norway.
FrP has made an initial choice About the desire to ban public prayer calls and similar calls to prayer that violate Norwegian traditions. It is about choosing an important value in a society facing increasing integration challenges.
