Dutch Politician Calls for Constitutional Sharia Ban

February 21 2011

Politician Roel Kuiper, of the Netherlands’ Christian Union, has called for a constitutional amendment banning sharia law in the country. He suggests that Islamic law is “grounded in retaliation” and is “not rooted in principles which form part of Dutch culture”. Further, Senator Kuiper wants to regulate the flow of money from Arab countries to Dutch mosques.
