Denmark criticised for limiting religious freedom
European experts criticise Denmark for taking interventions against religious extremism one step too far, reports Kristeligt Dagblad.
Danish Parliament on Monday adopted the last part of the anti-extremism package, the so-called 'forkynderlov', which includes a public sanction list of religious preachers.
According to Ingvill Thorson Plesner, a human rights researcher at University of Olso, and Peter Edge, a professor of law at Oxford Brookes University, the new law is in conflict with religious freedom.
"With these laws Denmark stands out by going further than we see in Norway and other European countries," Plesner told Kristeligt Dagblad.
