Fact Check: Is the Islamic party demanding to declare Belgium an Islamic country & follow Sharia law?

A news report from Russia Today is getting viral on various social media platforms. The video is claiming that the new Islamic party in Belgium is planning to form an Islamic state.

In the video, the anchor talks to the MP of Belgium asking about his views on the entire matter.

A tweet reads, “If they win Elections, the Islamic party is demanding to declare Belgium an Islamic country & follow Sharia law. Huge protests have already started.”
