His campaign began on YouTube, but news of it rapidly reached the Danish MSM, and is now available in English. According to Politiken, Naser Khader has launched a strong counterattack:
Khader: Quraishy Damaging Denmark- - - - - - - - -
The Syrian-born Leader of the Liberal Alliance Party Naser Khader is accusing a fellow Dane, Pakistani-born Bashy Quraishy of being a swindler with a questionable CV who travels around Europe on EU funds to spread negative stories about Denmark.
Khader says he is not surprised that Quraishy is urging Muslim countries to boycott Denmark in protest against the influence the Danish People’s Party exerts on Danish politics.
“This is treason of the worst type. I don’t understand why he’s so busy damaging the country that has given him a home. He’s not even a practicing Muslim and I certainly don’t understand his urge to involve totalitarian countries in Danish conditions,” Naser Khader says according to Ritzau.
‘I will not dignify Khader’s remarks with an answer. This is the way a failed politician is simply trying to get into the news,’ Bashy Quraishy tells politiken.dk.
“If someone like Naser Khader, with his reputation, tries to accuse someone like me of treason, then it simply means he doesn’t know the meaning of the word. I love Denmark. It is my country and homeland. Why can’t I criticise the country I love,” says Quraishy.
