SLOVAKIA has passed a law which will effectively ban Islam from gaining official status as a religion, in the latest signs of a growing anti-Muslim sentiment across Europe.
Although this message dates a few months ago, this no longer recognizing islam as being a religion is the first step to limit all of the muslims special demands and to finally ban the whole cult from our countries so we can live in freedom, the freedom we fought for…
The legislation hints at a dramatic changing attitude towards the religion in the past year across the continent, which has struggled to stem the escalating migrant crisis.
