Will Denmark ban Hizb ut-tahrir?

Denmark is still coming to terms with the attack by a gunman two weeks ago, in which two people were killed and five police were injured in attacks on a free speech debate and a synagogue. Now, a majority of Danish MPs are calling for the prohibition of the radical Islamist group Hizb ut Tahrir. The party is already banned in many countries including Germany and Russia. Denmark is also still waiting to hear whether a German judge will prosecute a radical preacher from the city of Aarhus who called for the extermination of the Jews.
