Most of the Muslims in Slovakia are refugees from former Yugoslavia or workers from Turkey, beside them Arab students and migrant workers from South and Southeast Asia. Most of the Muslims live in the capital Bratislava.
Slovakia is the last member state of the European Union without a mosque
In 2000, a dispute about the building of an Islamic center in Bratislava erupted: the capital's mayor refused such attempts of the Slovak Islamic Waqfs Foundation.
In 2015, amidst the European migrant crisis, Slovakia agreed to admit 200 Christian asylum seekers but refused to accept Muslims under an EU scheme to share migrants between member states. Slovak Ministry of Interior Affairs explained this decision by the absence of Muslim places of worship in Slovakia which will allegedly complicate the migrants' integration in Slovak society.
On 30 November 2016, Slovakia passed legislation to effectively block Islam from gaining official status as a religion in the country. Slovakia is the only country within the European Union without any mosque.
Nobody can forbid freedom of religion
As you could read above, it will be hard work and it will cost us a lot of power and resources but with the worldwide support, your support, nothing is impossible.
