Danish Muslims urged not to vote
Two radical Islamic groups in Denmark argue that democracy is incompatible with their religion and have told Muslims to boycott the June 18 election.
The controversial Islamic organization Hizb ut-Tahrir has urged Danish Muslims to stay away from the voting booths on the upcoming June 18th election as a form of protest against the democratic system.
"We are committed to being active participants in our society, but it has to be on Islam's terms, without compromising our own principles and values. Democracy is fundamentally incompatible with Islam, and it is a sinking ship," the organisation wrote in a press release, adding that the way forward for Muslims in Denmark is to oppose the country's "Islamophobic" integration policies.
