In continuation of the heated debate that followed the controversial statements on Muslim fathers and rape by president of the Danish Free Press Society, Lars Hedegaard, MP for Danish People’s Party, Jesper Langballe, in a feature in a nationwide paper wrote that “of course Hedegaard shouldn’t say that Muslim fathers rape their daughters when the truth is that they kill them (the so called honour killings) – and in addition don’t pay notice to uncles’ rape of their daughters”. Also these statements lead to condemnation of Langballe from all parts of the political spectrum – including the Danish Prime Minister who said that Langballe’s words “are stupid and generalizing”. Leader of the Danish People’s Party, Pia Kjærsgaard, also said that it was stupid of Langballe to write such statements and that they are damaging for the Danish People’s Party.
