Hot! Slovakia’s New Law Blocks Islam from Becoming State Religion

The law was approved by a two thirds majority vote in parliament


Slovakian government has passed a law that effectively prohibits any state from adopting Islam as its religion in the future reports RT.

The law now requires 50,000 members for a religion to be recognized as state religion, a number that is more than double the previous requirement of 20,000.

Sponsored by the Slovak National Party (SNS), the legislation came to vote on Wednesday and was approved by a two-thirds majority from both the ruling and oppositions parties.

Although the Muslim population in Slovakia is a mere 2000 without the presence of mosques, the law will make it almost impossible for Islam to be registered as a religion. Chairman of SNS Andrej Danko said as quoted by Reuters, We must do everything we can so that no mosque is built in the future.”
