According to the Danish newspaper Extrabladet, there are many indications that the immigration-critical People's Party's bill is destined to get support from fellow parliamentary parties.
The background to the new bill is a documentary series that was aired by the Danish TV-channel TV2 earlier this month. In the documentary, two Danish Muslims visited mosques with a hidden camera. The film series featured secretly filmed imams boasting how Islam is about to conquer Europe and urging Muslims not to work, but instead grab as many benefits as possible.
"Just tell the Danes you don't own anything. If you do that, it becomes a problem," one of the Muslim leaders was quoted as saying.
The documentary series has received considerable attention in Denmark, and a proposal to revoke the citizenship of Muslim leaders who teach Muslim extremism was presented by the Danish People's Party (Danske Folkepartiet).
"It should be possible to withdraw citizenship," the DF's integration policy spokesman Martin Henriksen said.
According to him, Denmark should be able to sentence imams and Muslim leaders to jail or fines if they preach doctrines contrary to the laws of Denmark and Danish values.
"There are situations, when you with the constitution in hand can say that something is at odds with the fundamental values of Danish society," Henriksen argues.
The proposal has already received support from the ruling Liberal Party, the Conservative Party, as well as the oppositional Social Democratic Party, which means that the DF's bill will most likely get through the parliament. The recent Islamist bombings in Brussels are believed to have increased support for the bill.
