The government of Austria has launched a widespread crackdown on radical Islamists in the country, particularly mosques that are funded by Turkey to promote the interests of the Middle Eastern countries Islamist President Tayyip Erdogan.

As part of the crackdown Austria will deport over 60 Imams and permanently close down 7 Mosques as part of their initial steps to stifle the metastasising problem of Islamism in the country.

Interior Minister, Herbert Kickl, has said these initial steps are only the beginning of the moves against foreign funded Muslim preachers and Mosques in Austria.

Across Europe the Turkish diaspora has grown more vocal and at times violently opposed those who speak out against the Turkish governments actions under President Erdogan particularly Kurdish migrants and descendants.

Across Europe large Muslim migration has led to the development of ghettos and the establishment of so-called “parallel societies”.

Austrian Chancellor, Sebastian Kurz, has vowed that “parallel societies, political Islam and radicalisation have no place in our country”.
