On November 25, 2019, Filip Dewinter, a leader of the Flemish separatist party Vlaams Belang, posted a video featuring a bus driver at Station Halle in Belgium immersed in his Islamic prayer ritual .
Contrary to laws and regulation, the Muslim bus driver was caught on film “over a period of ten minutes’ performing his prayers inside of the bus.
The spokesperson for the company says: “Our policy in this regard is clear: praying in a vehicle at a final stop (that is visible to others) is not permitted. Stopping during the ride to pray is not allowed either. There have been rules about praying at work since 2008.
The Vlaams Belang leader asked for people to make their opinion known in replies to his post.
Dewinter addressed a similar issue in February 2019 when a Muslim bus driver with passengers aboard pulled off the road for 15 minutes while he prayed in the aisle. Dewinter reported on his Facebook,
“Yesterday I was contacted by a bus passenger who – rightly – was annoyed that on Tuesday 5 February at 2 pm a bus from De Lijn en route from Borgerhout to the South (line 30) suddenly stopped around 2 pm” . “The Muslim driver parked the bus with passengers on board, switched off the engine and stepped to the rear of the bus. There he took off his uniform jacket, spread his jacket on the floor and began to pray … for 15 minutes. ”
“Islamization is everywhere, nowadays even on buses,” said Dewinter to SCEPTR, a conservative news website. “Under the guise of religious tolerance and multicultural tolerance, this is all just allowed.” For Dewinter, this fact makes it clear once again that assimilation with totally opposite ideologies is not easily attainable. “Such facts make it difficult to integrate those people. That is the fundamental problem. People always point to the Flemish, but this is another example of how difficult it is to live with Muslims ”, according to Dewinter.
