New Czech mosques may be subject to local referendums
The construction of some religious buildings, mosques in particular, may be subjected to tough regulation such as the consent by local residents in referendums, under the amendment to the construction law proposed by Karel Rais, a deputy for the Czech ANO movement.
The measure is not to relate to established churches. It should only be valid for the churches and religious societies that are not bearers of the "special rights" under the church law, Rais said.
Finance Minister Andrej Babis's ANO is a member of the three-party coalition government, also comprised of the Social Democrats (CSSD) and Christian Democrats (KDU-CSL).
