Named among the hundred most influential Danes of the 20th Century, MP Naser Khader  is Danish-Syrian and a member of the Parliament of Denmark for the Conservative People’s Party. Mr. Khader co-founded a moderate association of Islamism critics in 2006, prompted by the Mohammed Cartoon crisis, with the aim to promote freedom of speech and inspire moderate Muslims worldwide. Khader and the Conservative Party advocate a complete ban on the burqa as part of an integration initiative by the Conservatives’ parliamentary group, describing it as “un-Danish” and “oppression against women”. He is an author in the book “Nordic Ways” recently published by CTR.
