Peter Skaarup, foreign policy spokesman for the Danish People’s Party, said that footage of women sunbathing topless at Danish beaches should be included in tourism videos to scare away immigrants.
He is in fact calling on the government to consider the idea, the UK’s Telegraph reported.
He said that including the shots of sunbathing women in a video screened as part of an immigration test would emphasise the point that Demnark is an open, free society.
“Topless bathing probably isn’t a common sight on Pakistani beaches, but in Denmark it is still considered quite normal,” News.com.au quoted Skaarup as saying.
“I honestly believe that by including a couple of bare breasts in the movie, extremists may have to think twice before deciding to come to Denmark.”
However doubts have been raised about the idea, with Naser Khader, a member of the Danish parliament and founder of the Moderate Muslims movement, say it wouldn’t work.
“A pair of naked breasts is no protection against extremism,” Khader wrote on his Facebook page.
“It’s quite the opposite, fundamentalists are so obsessed with sex that they will be pouring in over the borders.”
Skaarup said that a similar documentary in Holland showed bare breasts, and that Denmark should follow their example. (ANI)
