KDU-ČSL: Political Islam incompatible with democracy
The Czech junior government Christian Democrats (KDU-ČSL) stood up against political Islam at their congress this weekend, saying it includes elements incompatible with democracy, it ensues from a resolution the congress passed today.
"The KDU-ČSL makes difference between Islam as a religion and political Islam as an ideology including some elements that are incompatible with democracy and human rights," the resolution says.
"The European non-Muslim majority must conduct a permanent dialogue with the Muslim minority, based on emphasizing European values," the resolution says and adds that within the dialogue, too, a clear difference must be made between Islam as a religion and political Islam as a state ideology.
