The website of OnIslam has claimed that Spain is planning to grant citizenship to Muslims who accept Christianity, marking a comeback of a tactic used during the Spanish inquisitions.
Spanish website ETC Noticias apparently quoted the president of the Spanish Episcopal Conference (SEC) and Minister of Justice Alberto Ruiz Gallardón saying “Spain would not be Spain without Christianity and without Catholicism,” last week, World bulletin informs.
“Since the foundation of the country by the Catholic Monarchs that led the Generalissimo to govern Spain by the grace of God, our country has been the spiritual reserve of the West. And so it will, with God's help,”- he added.
According to ETC, the conversion must be authorized by representative of the Catholic Church and take place in the temples of this confession. Converts must also pay a fee of €60, of which €5 will be for the Spanish State and the remaining €55 for the Church.
As reported, Muslims make up 3% of the Spanish population, with 1.4 million citizens and residents. However, the number of Muslims living unregistered in Spain is increasing, as the sea route between Morocco and Spain is becoming a common entry point for refugees trying to enter Europe illegally as they flee from conflicts in Africa and the Middle-East.
