NORWAY: Since when did the amplified broadcasting of the Muslim Call to Prayer become a “human right” in a non-Muslim country?

Thanks to BNI:

As Norway considers a total ban on the annoying and offensive Muslim call to prayer, a Norwegian politician (below) says he ‘doesn’t give a crap about Muslim human rights, and thinks all mosques should be banned from broadcasting the amplified call to prayer that can be heard for miles around.  

DailyMail  Jon Helgheim, immigration spokesman for Progress Party, part of Oslo’s ruling two-party coalition, said the country’s residents needed ‘peace and quiet’. He rejected arguments that banning the religious announcement being played over loudspeakers would violate the European Convention on Human Rights.

‘I don’t give a toss what human rights provisions say in this case,’ he told Vårt Land.

What I care about is that people get peace and quiet in their neighbourhoods, and that means not being disturbed by the call to prayer. ‘If there are conflicting provisions in the Convention on Human Rights, I simply don’t care, because it’s completely stupid.’

Article 9 enshrines the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion in all signatory countries including Norway. The party’s local branch in Buskerud county, west of Oslo, used the same argument but in reverse in its proposal to ban the call to prayer.

‘In several places in the country have now established regulations under which mosques have permission to issue the call to prayer over loudspeakers,’ it claimed, according to The Local Norway.

‘A great many people perceive this as annoying and inappropriate. In Norway we have freedom of religion, which should also include the right not to be exposed to public calls to prayer.’

The Buskerud county proposal will be voted on at the anti-Muslim immigration party’s national meeting this weekend, deciding whether to make it formal policy.
