The government will create its own action plan against Muslim hatred

A separate national action plan will help prevent discrimination and hatred against Muslims.

The government has discussed whether the measures should be part of a broader action plan on racism and discrimination, which will be presented this fall. But Minister of Culture and Gender Equality Trine Skei Grande (V) has been eager to get a separate plan against Muslim hatred. The issue came high on the agenda after the mosque attack in Bærum recently.

“More powerful measures against Muslim hostility are needed. We need to make sure people feel safe on the street and safe in the mosque. That is why I am pleased to present an action plan against discrimination and hate to Muslims,” Grande says.

The government will involve volunteers, teams and associations in the work on the plan, the Ministry of Culture said in a press release.

Three years ago, the government also presented its own plan of action against anti-Semitism.
