Political majority wants Hizb ut-Tahrir banned
In the wake of the terrorist attack in Copenhagen earlier this month, a majority in parliament has agreed to look into the possibility of banning the Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir in Denmark.
With the backing of opposition parties Liberal Alliance, Venstre, Socialistisk Folkeparti, Dansk Folkeparti, and Enhedslisten, the justice minister, Mette Frederiksen, has asked the state prosecutor, Rigsadvokaten, to look into the possibility of banning the controversial organisation.
"My own opinion is that that organisation should be dissolved," Frederiksen told Politiken newspaper. "And the second that Rigsadvokaten finds grounds for dissolving them, it must happen."
