National broadcaster DR will mark the end of Ramadan, the Islamic month of fasting, next week by organising a festive event that includes music and workshops inside Koncerthuset, as well as several radio programs.
But not everyone is in a festive mood. Ole Hyltoft, DR’s deputy chairman, calls it a terrifying gamble and contends that Islam has political and warlike beliefs aimed at all non-Muslims.
“I keep thinking about the many ignorant and naïve Danes who celebrated the Hitler Youth in the 1930s for the healthy lifestyle, good food and fresh music that the young Germans embraced,” Hyltoft told Politiken newspaper. “Is it right that DR launch such a controversial project without discussing it with the board?”
Despite recently announcing that she would step down as Dansk Folkeparti's leader, Pia Kjærsgaard showed she wasn’t going to pull out of the limelight and agreed with Hyltoft, who was appointed to DR by Dansk Folkeparti in 2007. “I guess we have to be force-fed this stuff. Wherever we turn, we have to hear something about Eid,” Kjærsgaard told Politiken,
But Nihad Hodzic, spokesperson for Muslim interest group Muslimer i Dialog, disagrees with Hyltoft’s outburst, saying that there is nothing wrong with DR focusing on the end of Ramadan. “What is terrifying is that there is a man on the board that thinks it’s “terrifying” to include people in a public service event,“ Hodzic told Politiken. “The purpose of public service is to include the public, which Muslims are part of.”
All of next week, the radio station P3 will be concentrating their efforts on a pre-party to Eid and on Monday, August 20, it will all culminate in a concert at Koncerhuset.
I didn't think Muslims who followed Mohammed to the letter had music?

Is this month of mealtime-shifting and special malevolence towards non-Muslims desribed in Denmark, and elsewhere in Europe, as it is now described in the United States, as "the holy month of Ramadan"?
Why not just the "month of Ramadan." We'll leave it up to Muslims to feel -- and do not wish to be imposed upon to share -- its attributed "holiness."
