Former Interior minister, Matteo Salvini’s Lega party is fighting to stop the problem of Illegally operated mosques which have been allowed to continue operating throughout the pandemic. The consequences for one Lega MEP, and municipal advisor, Silvia Sardone, have been threats by Muslim migrants to gang rape and murder her, along with her young children.
RAIR Foundation MEP Sardone has been repeatedly threatened with rape and death over the past year for her opposition to the mosque. As the politician explains, in October, they also threatened to burn her alive and kill her young children. What is moderate about this type of Islam, questions Sardone? Furthermore, those threatening her life are NOT even Italian muslims but those who have made their way to Italy illegally.
The two Lega party advocates have been fighting to shut down one of the illegally operating mosques in Via Sabatino Lopez, an area in Milan. Muslims have been using the inside of a bakery to operate their mosque. Services have gotten so popular they have spilled over to the sidewalk.
Not only is the mosque operating illegally in a bakery, but, it’s violating the region’s strict coronavirus emergency lockdown measures. Meanwhile, non-Muslims are forced to comply and severely fined if they violate region rules.
Instead of left-wing politicians in Italy rallying behind Sardone, they have remained silent. The leader believes the left would have defended her if she was not a conservative and the radicals were not Muslim,
“Instead of expressing their solidarity with a woman who receives death threats. Probably because I am a rightist woman, and the death threats are from Muslim people. If I had been a leftist woman receiving death threats from someone else, they would have done anything to defend me.”
