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.
I can’t actually tell if the law is in conflict with established views of ‘religious freedom,’ but this something to watch out for. On the other hand, I had to blog about this because the law is actually called ‘forkynderlov.’
