Washington: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Monday said that the United States should “strongly consider” shuttering some mosques as part of its efforts to prevent extremist attacks in the country, according to a report published in AFP.
“You’re going to have to watch and study the mosques, because a lot of talk is going on in the mosques,” Donald Trump told cable broadcaster MSNBC after Friday’s horrific attacks in Paris.
“We have to be much tougher,” he said. “We are going to have to give up certain privileges that we’ve always had.”
French PM Manuel Valls said that radical mosques and groups that attack the country’s values should be shut down.
MSNBC asked if Republican presidential candidate would do the same in the US if he were president.
“I would hate to do it but it’s something that you’re going to have to strongly consider because some of the ideas and some of the hatred, the absolute hatred, is coming from these areas,” Trumph added.
