Abstract [en]

The purpose of this paper was to examine and analyze Jomshof's argument in "Interpellationdebate 2017/18: 434 prayer call", where he proposed that freedom of religion be restricted byadopting a Swedish ban on Islamic prayer calls. In this work, a normative qualitative textanalysis has been used to investigate why Jomshof gives this proposal and how he does it. Ihave investigated this by examining the debate itself, but also by placing Jomshof's views intoa broader context of society and party ideology. Results from my analysis show that the centralviews the debater bases his proposal on is that the legal situation allows the realization of theproposal, that Swedish democracy is threatened, and that Swedish secularization must bepreserved. My analysis results also show that Jomshof's discourse is xenophobic and has racistundertones and that Jomshof wants to create an image of the existence of hierarchies amongpeople. What my analysys also showed was that negative consequences on individual andcommunity levels could occur if Jomshof's proposal was made law. Even if his opinionsexpress, and the way how he expresses them, could have negative consequences.
