(ANSA) – BRUSSELS, JUL 28 – The speech by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban delivered last weekend in Romania, in which the head of the Budapest government lashed out against the “mixed race”, continues to raise controversy. Revolting against the Hungarian prime minister are members of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences who in an online petition say they are “shocked” by Orban’s statements.
“The human race is one, therefore the idea of human races and their mixture is biologically flawed, – write the academics -, the political reference to them brings back a historically failed and disastrous ideology”. “We find it unacceptable – they conclude – that the Prime Minister associates the future of the Hungarian people with a scientifically unsustainable doctrine and such a dangerous ideology”.
