'Immigration has to become a political issue'
by Mohammed Amin Kharraki
Sweden's politicians will fuel further segregation and the rise of the nationalist Sweden Democrats if they refuse to develop a new language on immigration, argues Mohammed Amin Kharraki, a teacher and spokesperson for Sweden's Islamic Association.
"Where are you from?" is a question I am commonly asked. The answer is that I am from Sweden. I was born here. I am 30 years old and my parents moved here from Morocco in the 1970s.
But here in Sweden, where several generations of immigrants have now settled, there still seems to be no problem with asking that question.
