Not only will Slovakia not admit Muslim invaders posing as refugees and asylum seekers, for the few thousand Muslims already there, no mosques are allowed either. Slovakia is the only EU member state without a single mosque and all previous attempts to build them have been halted by politicians. Slovakia was occupied by the Turkish Ottomans for 200 years. They won’t make that mistake again.
Voice of Europe (h/t Maurice) The country does NOT recognize Islam as a religion and only have a few thousand Muslim residents. Islam must not be taught in schools and the 5,000 Muslims, mostly European ones, who reside in the country are not officially recognised. They account for only 0.1% of the population.
In 2007, politicians changed the country’s laws so that 20,000 signatures from members were required to be recognized by the state. In 2017 they more than doubled the number of necessary signatures to 50,000.
Not being officially recognized poses major difficulties for the group. Among other things, they are not allowed to have official religious leaders, conduct Muslim marriages or receive financial contributions from the State, rights which 18 other recognized religions have.
According to some of the country’s politicians, Islam is a serious threat. “Islamization begins with kebab and in Bratislava it has already begun. So understand what it could be like in 5-10 years,” says MP Andrej Danko.
Slovakian Prime Minister Robert Fico is one of the most outspoken European leaders on the subject of Muslim immigration and is also known to hold the Islamic faith in barefaced contempt.
“Islam has no place in Slovakia,” Fico told reporters in May. Warning that “migrants change the character of our country,” Fico declared he wouldn’t allow such change to affect his nation, implying an adverse, “Islam-driven” change.
“Since Slovakia is a Christian country, we cannot tolerate an influx of hundreds of thousands of Muslim migrants who would like to start building mosques all over our land and trying to change the nature, culture, and values of the nation state,” he said. ” We will not allow the formation of a unified Muslim community in Slovakia.”
“Every normal European, Christian or atheist fears this satanic paedophile creation of the devil,” rumbles another critical MP.
According to TRT, the situation was further complicated for the country’s Muslims in connection with the 2015 asylum wave. Slovakia then used the absence of mosques as an argument not to accept any migrants. The TV channel also claims that Slovakia violates EU rights laws by not permitting the building of mosques.
To no one’s surprise, Slovakia will not support UN migration pact under any circumstances, Prime Minister says
