Hagen halts Muslim prayer at Oslo school
An Oslo high school has been told by the city officials to close a Muslim prayer room following criticism from Carl I. Hagen, a city councillor for the right-wing populist Progress Party.
"I have told the school via the education director that it is not acceptable to establish a separate prayer room in an Oslo school," Torger Ødegaard of the Oslo schools council has explained, according to a report by state broadcaster NRK.
"School is an institution for education and not a religious institution," he said.
