Islamist groups urge Muslim Danes to boycott election, saying democracy ‘incompatible’ with Islam

.... Islamic organization Hizb ut Tahrir, which has campaigned since 1953 for a global Islamic caliphate to be established, has called for Danish Muslims to boycott the coming election in a protest against democracy, The Local reports.

“We are committed to being active participants in our society, but it has to be on Islam’s terms, without compromising our own principles and values. Democracy is fundamentally incompatible with Islam, and it is a sinking ship,” the organization said in a statement.

Unlike ISIS and Al-Qaeda, Hizb ut-Tahrir says it rejects the use of violence.

The Grimshoj mosque, known for its radical views, has openly declared its support for ISIS. It echoed Hizb ut-Tahrir, issuing a similar statement in an interview with the Danish regional channel TV2 Østjylland. [RT News] Read more
