Islam is incompatible with Italy’s values and freedoms, the leader of the hard-Right League party warned on Thursday, as he stepped up aggressive campaigning ahead of the country’s impending election. Matteo Salvini, who holds an unlikely ambition to become prime minister after elections next month, said Italy should not go down the same path as the UK where, he claimed, Islamist courts have superseded the secular, common law justice system. “I don’t want to end up like Great Britain, which has Islamic courts instead of British courts,” he said.
