Svenska muslimer är för EU konstitutionen

“This constitution is in the interest of the Muslim minority in Sweden, which is estimated at 500,000, as it safeguards the rights of minorities and freedom of religion,” Sheikh Hassan Moussa, chairman of the Swedish Council for Imams, told IslamOnline.
Moussa, who doubles as the imam of Sheikh Zayed mosque in the capital Stockholm, said the treaty eschews all sorts of racist and religious discrimination, given that it dropped any reference to Christianity as the continent's religion.

Liberal Code
The Muslim leaders, however, recognize that the European constitution has its minuses.
Moussa said the code indulges itself in liberalism and capitalism.

Helena Bin Ouda, the chairwoman of the Swedish Islamic Council, the main Muslim representative body in Sweden, also fears that Europe’s corporate titans would determine the fate of the entire continent.
“I, to be honest, also fear that Europe would toe the NATO line, which would have future repercussions,” she told IOL.
