Contrary

Tit for Tat

The Saudi government and a rich private person wanted to build mosques for tens of millions in Norway. They have the full right to do so, according to Norwegian law. However, there is a clause in the law that the Norwegian government has to approve the financial support.

Jonas Gahr Støre, Norwegian Foreign Minister, denied the request and wrote, “It would be a paradox and unnatural to accept funding from sources in a country where there is no religious freedom.”
