A Muslim crew at a primary school in Oslo was refused to continue after refusing to greet women. City council leader Raymond Johansen supports the decision.
The religious man in the 40’s has complained to the school and the Nav for the Discrimination Board after he could not continue as expected in a vacancy as a teacher and assistant at the activity school, writes Dagsavisen. Former Rector, Bente Alfheim, at Ekeberg Primary School, remembers the matter well and says the subject was raised several times.
“We always said it was a problem, we never said we accepted it. However, we were open to inclusion and would give him an opportunity, she explains.
She says there were complaints from female teachers who felt that he would not take them in hand. The former Rector can not see how she could defend that an employee at school will not greet women.
City council leader Raymond Johansen (AP) supports the school’s decision not to extend the temporary work. He believes that not having a handshake for religious reasons should not be a practice Oslo Municipality is to support.
“One should not be able to avoid attacking another person because for religious reasons it is unacceptable,” said the city council leader to NRK.
The Discrimination Board reports to Dagsavisen that the complaints will probably be dealt with in October and that a decision can be expected in November.
The case is not unique. In April, the Supreme Court of Appeal in France ruled that a Muslim woman should nevertheless be granted French citizenship after refusing to hand in two distinguished representatives of French publicity during a national ceremony.
The authorities believe this was evidence that she “had not been assimilated into the French community”. This is a reason that the authorities may use in the legislation to reject citizenship of the spouse of a French citizen.
My comment on this is:
Muslims who do not adapt to Norwegian traditions and statutes can go home! We in Norway will have our traditions. In all Western countries, it is usual to greet. So Satan’s ideology can go home, we do not want them here.
