Co-founder of Belgium's Islam party dismissed from STIBThursday, 03 May 2018 11:59
At the beginning of April, Redouane Ahrouch, a municipal councillor in Anderlecht and a STIB bus driver, had unveiled the party’s programme which recommended the establishment of Islamic State in Belgium, as well as the instigation of sharia law (the Islamic law). He, in particular, indicated that he favoured the segregation of men and women when on public transport.
The spokeswomen indicated, “During the conversation, which took place on Wednesday morning, the STIB management indicated he was being dismissed on the grounds that his comments conflict with the company’s values.”
According to STIB, the fact that Mr Ahrouch has been publicly identified as a driver could cause confusion between “his own intentions” and the values of the public transport company employing him.
