Czech Muslims to sue extremist National Party

The umbrella organization of Czech Muslims, known as Libertas Independet Agency, said on Monday that they would file a criminal complaint against the far right-wing National Party and its chairwoman Petra Edelmannová. Muslim leader Lukáš Lhoťan said the National Party’s website contained a number of statements and threats concerning the Czech Muslim community. The National Party website reportedly called for the demolition of mosques and the ban of Islam in connection with the recent death of the Czech ambassador to Pakistan who was killed in a terrorist attack against the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad.
