Swedish Feminists Flee Migrant Heavy Areas

For over thirty years, Nalin Pekgul has lived in the Stockholm suburb of Tensta, but she claims to no longer feel safe because migrant heavy zones like Husby and Tensta have become overrun with religious fundamentalists. According to Swedish broadcasters, she can't even visit the center of Tensta without being harrased.

According to Ms. Pekgul, the situation for women in public life in the area has deteriorated over the past several years. She noted that there has been a rise in religious fundamentalism amongst the men in the area, many of whom come from migrant backgrounds. Pekgul attempted to combat the trend by organising coffee shop meetings but soon abandoned the idea.

“In Tensta I am a known face and I have no desire to stir up trouble when I get harassed,” Pekgul said explaining why she no longer goes into the centre of the suburb. When asked if she will remain in the suburb, she said: “I always hope that it will blow over. One should never forget that the vast majority here are cursing the fundamentalists.”

Zeliha Dagli, a former Left Party politician, did end up moving from the no-go suburb of Husby. Dagli described Husby as having self-appointed “morality police” who attempt to control women’s behaviour in the area.

Aggression toward feminists, in particular, became an issue she said. “There were rumours that we wanted to take away women’s veils,” she said. “They said that I should keep myself, and then I did not feel so safe anymore.”

This is an unfortunate situation for the people of Swedish, but it's important in the fact that hopefully it'll help open some eyes to a real problem. It's no longer about racism. It's about citizens having their lives be put in danger because of a belief system.
