Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said in a speech Monday the country’s constitution explicitly forbids Islamization.
This puts Hungary on more secure footing than other countries in the European Union as far as migration and cultural shifts are concerned — the constitution’s primary aim is to secure the existence of Hungarian norms and language. This means that any attempts to fundamentally transform the country in an Islamic direction are blatantly unconstitutional, The Associated Press reports.
This entails that the government step in and prevent any activity that pushes Hungary closer to an Islamic society, according to Orban. Part of this proactive effort includes opposing mass migration.
“To be clear and unequivocal, I can say that Islamization is constitutionally banned in Hungary,” Orban said in parliament at an event celebrating the fifth anniversary of Hungary’s new constitution, now known as the Basic Law.
Orban was quoting from the National Avowal, the Basic Law’s preamble, which details the country’s commitment “to promoting and safeguarding our heritage, our unique language, Hungarian culture” and the protection of “the living conditions of future generations.”
