In 2010, there were an estimated 5,000 Muslims in Slovakia representing fewer than 0.1% of the country’s population.
Most of the Muslims in Slovakia are refugees from former Yugoslavia (Bosnians and Albanians) or workers from modern Turkey (Turks, beside them a few Arab students and migrant workers from South and Southeast Asia. Most of the Muslims live in the capital Bratislava, smaller communities also exist in Košice and Martin.
Slovakia is the last member state of the European Union without a mosque. In 2000, a dispute erupted about the building of an Islamic center in Bratislava: the capital’s mayor refused such attempts of the Slovak Islamic Waqfs Foundation.
In 2015, amidst the European migrant crisis, Slovakia agreed to admit 200 Christian asylum seekers but refused to accept Muslims under an EU scheme to share migrants between member states.
Slovak Ministry of Interior Affairs explained this decision by the absence of Muslim places of worship in Slovakia which will allegedly complicate the refugees’ integration in Slovak society.
The decision was criticized by the EU which doubted its legality and expressed concern for its discriminatory nature.
On 30 November 2016, Slovakia passed legislation to effectively block Islam from gaining official status as a religion in the country. Slovakia is the only country within the European Union without any mosque.
According to some of the country’s politicians, Islam is a serious threat.
“Islamisation begins with kebab and in Bratislava, it has already begun. So understand what it could be like in 5-10 years,” says MP Andrej Danko.
“Every normal European, Christian or atheist fears this satanic pedophile creation of the devil,” rumbles another critical MP.
According to TRT, the situation was further complicated for the country’s Muslims in connection with the 2015 asylum wave. Slovakia then used the absence of mosques as an argument not to accept any migrants.
The TV channel also claims that Slovakia violates EU rights laws by not permitting the building of mosques.
Although the EU has experienced much crisis due to massive Muslim influx, they still label Slovakia’s politics as Islamophobic. However, the politicians in this peaceful, terror-free country haven’t change their stance!
