Residents in several immigrant dense neighborhoods in Sweden now risk being harassed by Islamists or criminals if they go out at night, confirm both the Swedish police and a women's rights activist.
Nalin Pekgul (pictured) lives in the district of Tensta in Stockholm, an area where the Swedish police admit that they are about to lose control. The district changes after lunch, and is a place where even parking attendants do not dare to impose fines, and where women risk being harrassed and spat on.
Pekgul believes that women's situation in Tensta today, is worse than in Kurdistan 50 years ago.
- The freedom my aunts had in Kurdistan in the 60s and 70s, I do not have in Tensta in Sweden in 2016. They could dress as they like, and here we now have morality police patrolling around the town and spitting on those who are wearing short skirts, says Pekgul.
She is one of Sweden's most famous immigrants and women's rights activist, and she was the first Muslim who was elected to the parliament, representing the Social Democrats.
Now she has withdrawn from politics and gives few interviews. She makes an exception for NRK when they visited her in the district of Tensta outside Stockholm.
The situation is deteriorating
Tensta is one of over 50 districts police in Sweden have singled out as particularly vulnerable areas, where a parallel society has developed, where local rules apply, and where criminal networks have the power.
Pekgul argues that also the "morality police" have a strong presence in many of these neighborhoods.
- A girl who wore jeans - and also wore a veil and a coat, was harassed by one from the same country as her, who said to her: "Hey you girl, why do you go naked?". Just because she was wearing jeans, says Pekgul.
- A lot has changed since I came here as a child in 1980. Then girls could wear shorts and short skirts, and we could do that we like. The religion had absolutely no space. My mom was one of the few who prayed and wore a veil and thought religion was important to her.
- Is there an organized morality police here?
- Certainly, they say it openly. There was a big meeting here in town a little while ago. When I passed, I heard a speaker who said: "They go in our streets with their short skirts and offend us."
According to Pekgul there are few women who dare to go out in Tensta in the evening.
- That's partly because the criminals are taking over downtown. Whether it's the criminals, or it is the Islamist forces. One does not know how one will be treated, so I understand that people are afraid to go out at night. So am I, says Pekgul.
- The community changes after lunch
Stockholm police officer Biljana Flyberg, says to NRK that parking companies are among those who do not take the chance of having attendants out in the afternoon and evening in suburbs like Rinkeby and Tensta, in Stockholm.
- After lunch once the community changes. In the afternoon more youths come out, and then parking attendants are being chased away or attacked. Thus it seems parking companies believe that they can not guarantee for their employees safety, says Flyberg.
Police: - More unsafe for women
NRK visited the districts Husby, Rinkeby and Tensta in Stockholm over several days, which also covered a weekend. After the shops closed, there was almost no women on the streets or in the squares. Most people who came out at that time of day, were groups of young men.
Police Inspector Lars Alvarsjø in Stockholm police region confirms that in many places it has become more unsafe for women in Sweden.
- Yes, I'd say it's been. Many women feel unsafe when they are outside in certain areas. That they have such fear is of course not acceptable, and we have seen an increase in attempted rape and sexual harassment, says Alvarsjø.
- It's about several factors, including cultural differences. Here, extensive work remains, says the police inspector.
According to Alvarsjø, police have seen a growing support for radical Islam in the deprived areas around Stockholm.
Nalin Pekul, who is a Muslim, is also a feminist. She believes Islamists have gained strong influence in parts of Swedish society, especially in neighborhoods with many immigrants.
In Tensta, almost 90 percent of the residents have immigrant background.
- There are groups who believe their laws and regulations should apply. They have no respect for this being Sweden, and that women have their freedom here, says Pekgul.
It is very sad to see Sweden breaking up from inside due to a mass immigration completely out of control, which in turn is knocking out the rule of law. And when that happens, there will be anarchy.
