Norwegian tax-funded radio and television broadcaster NRK has proudly announced that it will be the first TV station in Western Europe to do a live broadcast of Eid – the Muslim holiday that ends Ramadan. The broadcast is set to take place on the evening of Sunday May 24th.
“I’m really looking forward to this. We invite you to a party with good food, beautiful music, and nice and fun meetings with exciting guests. For those celebrating this day, probably things will be a little different this year because of the corona situation. We hope this program can contribute to a sense of community – that we celebrate together. And of course everyone is welcome,” said program director Rima Iraki.
The show will feature several Muslim TV personalities from Norway, such as actor Iman Meskini, comedian Yousef Hadaoui, and food blogger Jamilla El Haddaoui, NRK reports.
Female rapper Ugbad Musti will also perform on stage. Musti said that she hopes the broadcast will become an annual tradition in Norway.
“This maybe will make Norwegians want to learn more about Islam,” Musti told the broadcaster.
Unsurprisingly, many ordinary Norwegians are not pleased with the planned broadcast as Musti is.
“This is a milestone of Islamization of Norway,” said journalist Hege Storhaug on her site Rights Norway
“When an ideology that has ravaged the world for 1,400 years is normalized, there is reason to fear that the end of the NRK project, which is guaranteed to be supported by the Government and a majority in the parliament, could be fatal to the cores our democracy: equality , equality, freedom of speech and religious freedom,” Storhaug wrote.
