| ||The Perthshire Advertiser highlights the launch last week of the BNP’s manifesto for the Holyrood Assembly elections on May 5th|
The paper notes the BNPs’ referral to the Electoral Commission over a leaflet which falsely claimed there are “more Muslims in the UK than Scots”.
The BNP is also reported to have distributed a pamphlet across Scotland stating that the party would put an end to mosque-building and warning of a “flood” of Eastern European immigrants about to arrive in Scotland.
Excerpts from the BNP’s manifesto for the Holyrood elections that will be of concern to British Muslims:
“We are committed to ban the horrific practice of Halal ritual slaughter anywhere in Scotland on the grounds of animal cruelty. In addition we will end the supply use and distribution of all Halal ritual slaughter derived products by all publicly funded organisations within Scotland.
“This will include schools and educational establishments where Halal products are currently provided without the knowledge or consent of parents and children.”
There’s also this paragraph which alludes to the BNP’s proposal to end mosque-building:
“As a matter of policy, we would oppose planning applications to build or convert buildings into non-indigenous cultural or religious centres.”
