Belgium's People's Party (PP) has announced it is tabling a bill before parliament to prohibit all associations demanding the application of "sharia law" in Belgium.
Statements by the leader of the Islam party in the press recently have shaken the political world in Belgium. Even though this party only has two municipal councillors, the reactions to his statements have increased. Some parties have expressed their willingness to table a law prohibiting political groupings which contravene Belgium's fundamental values.
The PP proposal targets all associations which promote or recommend the application of "sharia law" in Belgium.
