The call to expel extremist Imams comes after it was revealed religious leaders were telling worshippers to beat children and stone women to death.
The revelation sparked fury and now the right-wing Danish People’s Party (DPP) has demanded such extremist leaders are stripped of their citizenship.
The DPP which currently holds the second most seats in the country’s multi-party parliament.
The proposal has reportedly been backed by the Social Democrats, the coalition’s largest group, the Conservative Party and the Liberal Party, effectively securing a majority for the bill in parliament.
Martin Hendriksen, the DPP’s immigration spokesman, said: “The Constitution says that anyone can practice their faith so long as it is not contrary to morals, or disturbing to the public order.
“When imams endorse or recommend stoning, or when an imam tells a woman subjected to violence by her husband that that’s okay, then that constitutes, in my opinion, subversive speech that disturbs the public order.
“Some of these imams are Danish citizens, and we think we should deprive them of their citizenship.”
