Partido Popular and Plataform for Catalonia require Muslims of Mataró to be the only ones to pay property taxes for their places of praying

29 May 2012
Although with different arguments and suggestions, the Partido Popular and the Platform for Catalonia (PXC) have filed two resolutions that put the spotlight on Muslim places of worship claiming that, they have to pay property taxes for their places of praying.
The three councilors of the PXC want the city Authority of Mataro to support the idea that the Islamic places of worship should be the only temples to be asked to pay the tribute. The political motion argues that Muslims must pay the tax property because “many of the mosques we have in our country are the focus of fundamentalism that spread sharia or the Islamic law as a total law to govern their followers and that shocks directly with the objectives of a religious institution in a democracy.”
