Police, locals deny claim part of The Hague is a 'Sharia triangle'
Claim by newspaper Trouw that part of The Hague's Schilderswijk district is so dominated by orthodox Muslims that they are dictating what people should wear and how they should behave, have been denied by both police and local politicians.
Under the headline 'Hague district is orthodox Muslim territory', Trouw said 'short skirts and dresses are not accepted on the street'.
The paper said the area, with a population of some 5,000, is known by locals as 'The Sharia Triangle'. 'Very slowly, the rules in the area are beginning to change,' the article said. 'The norms of the majority are beginning to take over.'
