Denmark has banned the entry of six foreign preachers for at least two years, following the publication of a blacklist of those it says have spread hate speech.

The blacklist, consisting of just six people, is dominated by controversial Muslim preachers and also features the Evangelical Florida pastor Terry Jones, who gained notoriety for burning copies of the holy Quran.

The Danish Immigration and Integration Ministry believes that the blacklist “sends a clear signal that travelling fanatical religious preachers who try to undermine our democracy and fundamental values of freedom and human rights are not welcome in Denmark.”

The list comprises Saudis Salman al-Ouda and Muhammad Al-Arifi, Americans Kamal El-Mekki and Jones, Syrian Mohammed Rateb al-Nabulsi and Canadian Bilal Philips.
