Danes: Muslims must speak out against terrorism
A new survey conducted by Megafon found that three out of four Danes want moderate Muslims and imams to be more vocal in dissociating themselves from terrorist acts.
The survey, conducted on behalf of TV2 and Politiken, found that only 13% of Danes believe that moderate Muslims and imams in Denmark are doing enough to distance themselves from the actions of others who carry out attacks in the name of their religion.
Naser Khader, a member of Parliament for the Conservative Party and spokesman for the party's immigration and integration policy, told TV2 that Muslims who do not speak out against terrorism are in effect sanctioning the violence and therefore share some of the blame when such acts are committed.
