Italian Supreme Court nullifies Lombardy’s ‘anti-Mosque’ law

 

Italy’s highest court has repealed a law that strictly regulated the construction of new mosques in the northern region of Lombardy, on the grounds that it unjustly discriminated against Muslims.

Representatives of the Northern League party, which sponsored the original bill, were quick to condemn the court’s ruling, calling it a victory for the left and for radical Islam.

“The State Council has rejected our law which regulated the construction of new mosques. The left exults: Allah Akbar,” tweeted Roberto Maroni, the president of the Lombardy Region and a member of the Northern League.
