Italian Archbishop has claimed that soon Europe will become an ‘Islamic continent’ because of the increasing Muslim population and the rise in the number of refugees.
[junkie-hightlights color=”green”]Italian Priest Monsignor Liberati is a known and significant figure in Italy and his remarks shows the islamophobic environment in Italy and Europe. He claimed that in 10 years we all Italians will be Muslims because of our stupidity.[/junkie-hightlights]
His remarks are based on fear and anti Islamic environment. Muslim population in Italy is between 1- 1.5 million which makes them 1.9% of the Italian population. So how a minority of 1.9% can convert the majority religion of the 98% population?
In past Italian government also blocked the construction of mosques in areas where Muslims were in considerable population. Such as Milan where the construction of mosque was blocked after a bill was passed which said that ‘Mosques discourages integration and are places of cultural indoctrination and are also linked with international terrorism’.
