A village in Hungary has banned the wearing of Muslim dress and the call to prayer. By leading what it calls “the war against Muslim culture”, it hopes to attract other Christian Europeans who object to multiculturalism in their own countries.
“We primarily welcome people from western Europe – people who wouldn’t like to live in a multicultural society,” Laszlo Toroczkai tells the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme. “We wouldn’t like to attract Muslims to the village.”
Mr Toroczkai is mayor of Asotthalom, a remote village in the southern Hungarian plains, situated around two hours from the capital Budapest.
