Dutch parliament refused on Thursday Denk Party's request to discuss the EU Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA) survey, which found that Muslims in the Netherlands experience discrimination at the highest rate among EU member states.
According to the results of the U.S.-based FRA survey, the Muslim community in the Netherlands is more widely discriminated against than any other Muslim communities in the EU. In response to the results of the survey, the Dutch Denk Party, founded by Dutch-Turks, is seeking to bring the subject to the agenda of parliament. However, the Denk Party's attempts to discuss the issue were rejected in parliament.
Issuing a statement on the issue, Denk Party leader Tunahan Kuzu said that parliament avoids questioning itself and grasps the policy of sliding over these kinds of important issues.
