Send refugees to towns with supports, says Muslim cleric

Refugees from Syria and elsewhere who come to Ireland under a European Union refugee programme should be sent to towns and cities where they have the support of others from similar backgrounds rather than being sent to rural areas, a leading Muslim cleric has urged.

Shaykh Dr Umar Al-Qadri said it was important that those coming to Ireland from Syria and elsewhere would not end up isolated in rural areas but would be placed where they can interact with those from a similar background while also being able to integrate into Irish society.

“When you are talking about integration – it means the guest community not only gets an opportunity to interact with the host community but also that they get some interaction with those of the same background which is very important,” said Dr Al-Qadri.

“Therefore our recommendation to the Deptartment of Justice is not to send these people to rural areas but to towns and cities where you have both communities – where they can interact with people of their own background but at the same time integrate with the larger Irish community.”

    It would make more sense for them to stay in Muslim countries.
