Belgian minister's comments on Muslims branded 'misleading and irresponsible' | In the news: data in the UK Data Service collection across the web | Scoop.it
Belgium's Justice Minister has been criticised after claiming the number of practicing Muslims would “very soon” overtake the number of practising Christians in Europe.

Speaking in a question and answer session at a parliamentary committee, Koen Geens said: “In Europe, very shortly we’re going to have more practising Muslims than practising Christians.”

His comments have been dismissed as “misleading and irresponsible” by one of the UK’s leading anti-Islamophobia charities.
