The Hungarian village of Asotthalom has made headlines after its council adopted several shocking proposals to ban mosques and the supporting of same-sex marriage on Wednesday (November 23).

According to RT, Laszlo Toroczkai, the mayor of the village and the man behind the proposals, posted about them on his Facebook page.

He wrote, “Instead of looking for a scapegoat, I rather offer instant solutions against Brussels’ mass settlement plan.”

He added that the laws were required to “defend our societies and traditions” and said that “nothing else needs to be done but all the other local governments of Hungary should adept our preventive regulation package, and we have defended our home.”

Toroczkai’s measures include a ban on the construction of mosques and any other place of worship that “undermines” the Catholic Church as well as a ban on all face coverings such as the hijab, niqab and burqa.

The law also bans any “public propaganda” which features same-sex marriage, including performances, demonstrations, leaflets and public activity.

Toroczkai hopes the laws will protect the village from “extreme liberalism” from the West.
