Dansk Folkeparti wants to ban Muslim holidays for school kids
It might be too late to deter some of Dansk Folkeparti's Muslim voters, but today's Metroxpress has reported how the right-wing party will be seeking to end the practice of schools and kindergartens giving time off to selected pupils for religious holidays like Eid, or even celebrating them in a bid to raise awareness of them.
Should the blue bloc prevail in the election, the proposal is apparently high on the Venstre ally's wish-list and it has made a carefully-worded law proposal.
"It has to be included in the laws pertaining to public schools that you are not allowed to celebrate other cultures' holidays," the DF spokesperson on immigration issues, Martin Henriksen, told Metroxpress.
