Danish PM irks right-wing party by wishing Muslims a happy Eid
Danish PM Lars Løkke Rasmussen today earned the ire of Kenneth Kristensen Berth, the citizenship spokesperson for right-wing party Dansk Folkeparti. He tweeted "Eid Mubarak" to Denmark's Muslim population who are currently ending their month-long fast over the period of Ramadan.
"I think it is very interesting that the prime minister wishes Muslims 'Eid Mubarak' now," Berth told Ekstra Bladet. "He did not wish the 80 percent of Danes who are Christians a happy Easter."
Berth said he guessed the PM felt it was "important to send this politically correct message".
