Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban has criticised countries that “mix two cultures” and think it will “create something new and good”.
“There are countries that think that mixing two cultures, Christianity and Islam, creates something new and good. We see it differently.
“If the others want to mix their cultures, then they have a right to this attempt. But we do not want to start any trials in Hungary.
“We do not want to mix our Christianity-based culture, values, attitude to life with other cultures,” the Hungarian Prime Minister said.
With his eyes on the upcoming European election in May, Orban hopes voters “want to retain and protect their national identity, as well as their Christian customs” as they are being threatened by increased migration flows.
Earlier the Hungarian Prime Minister said about Islam:
“We caution all against harbouring the idea that Islam is part of any European country. It is good to know the answers about Islam. And we Hungarians know them. For example, if we say that Islam is part of Germany, ‘in Islam’ it means that Germany is part of Islam.”
Orban’s Fidesz party has increased it’s lead since the elections and is now supported by 54 per cent of voters.
