شنَّت الأحزاب اليمينية المتطرفة المناهضة للهجرة والمسلمين في "النرويج" حملة شعواء بعد الموافقة الرسمية على إنشاء أول مدرسة إسلامية، بعد أعوام من مطالبة المسلمات بإيجاد مدرسة ابتدائية إسلامية لأطفالهن.
وقد استنكر وزير التعليم الهجوم الشرس على المدرسة الإسلامية؛ حيث أكد أن أعضاء البرلمان وافقوا على حصول المدارس الدينية على دعم حكومي، وأنه لا يجوز حرمان المسلمين من ذلك الحق.
وجدير بالذكر أن "النرويج" وطن لنحو 150 ألف مسلم، وتضم قرابة 90 جمعية ومركزًا إسلاميًّا؛ المصدر: شبكة الألوكة.

Far-right Opposes Oslo First Islamic School
A long-awaited approval of Norway’s first Islamic school has been facing fierce criticism from far-right and anti-immigration parties, arguing that it would damage children integration in the Scandinavian country.
“I see that there is a legitimate discussion over how separate schools for Muslims and Christians impact on integration in Norway,” Torbjørn Røe Isaksen, the Education Minister, told News in English.no on Wednesday, April 9.
“But when all Parliamentary parties are agreed that we should have a law where religious schools get state funding, it’s a little strange to deny Muslim schools approval.”
The approval of Oslo's Muslim school followed frequent calls by Mothers for a Muslim Primary School (Mødre for muslimsk grunnskole) over the past years to allow Islamic education.
The approval, granted by the Norwegian Directorate for Education and Training, allowed the group to start a new school this autumn, almost a decade after the first-ever Islamic primary school was closed over corruption allegations.
The school “will give education in Islamic spirituality and stimulate versatile formation, on an Islamic basis, with a view to good integration in the larger Norwegian society,” read the application of Mothers for a Muslim Primary School.
Planned to be opened by autumn, the Islamic school is expected to receive 200 students at its premises in east Oslo.
Oslo's Islamic school opponents have alleged that the new school will be ill-fated and will repeat the scenario of the previous one, an allegation that was refuted by conservatives who advised the new school to appoint a different board.
“As far as we can tell, we perceive this is the same application as the last, but with changes in the board,” said Anniken Hauglie, Oslo School Commissioner and member of the Conservative Party (Høyre).
“We are unsure if that is good enough, but assume that the directorate has handled the application properly and is sure that the same won’t happen again.”
Norwegian Muslims are estimated at 150,000 out of the country's 4.5 million population, mostly of Pakistan, Somali, Iraqi and Moroccan backgrounds.
There are nearly 90 Muslim organizations and Islamic centers across the northern European country.
