The Leader of the Danish People's Party Pia Kjærsgaard has flatly refused to consider new proposals from the Integration Minister for a new course in dealing with Muslims who have extremist views.
"It is unbelievably naïve of Birthe Rønn Hornbech (Lib) to put forward a plan like this. Unbelievable that the government tells us again that dialogue is the way forward in dealing with extremism and we have to accept it. This has nothing to do with what we have agreed in the budget, and the Danish People's Party will fight to make sure that Birthe Rønn Hornbech's course is not the one to be followed," says Kjærsgaard.
Kjærsgaard's remarks have finally pulled the carpet out from under Hornbech who is currently finalising the government's plan on how to combat extremism.
