Whenever Muslims comprise 10% of the population or more, Western culture begins a shocking decline.
Malmö: Rosengård ‘growing more radical.’
Ranstorp and Dos Santos describe how “ultra-radical” Islamists attached to basement mosques “preach isolation and act as thought controllers while also maintaining a strong culture of threats, in which women in particular are subjected to physical and psychological harassment.”
Konstantinides said he viewed the moderate Muslim majority, who are irritated and concerned by the radicals, as a resource with which to counteract their rise. “We need to try to mobilize the forces for good. We cooperate well with the Islamic Center, for example, which runs the main mosque in Malmö,” he said.
Integration and Equality Minister Nyamko Sabuni reacted strongly to the report.“It is completely unacceptable that there are fundamentalist groups in Rosengård prescribing child marriage, harassing women who don’t wear headscarves and encouraging young people to isolate themselves from society. Swedish laws, rights and equality apply to everybody, including the residents of Rosengård,” Sabuni said in a statement. Rosengård was the scene of extensive rioting in December following the closure of an Islamic cultural centre in the area.
