Denmark: Members of Moderate Radical Islamist group controlling local football club

Last year at an extraordinary general meeting of the Brøndby Strand football club (BSI), Hizb ut-Tahrir members Zahid Mansoor and Ibrahim Atrach were given places on the club’s board. Today, they are respectively the chairman and treasurer of the club, a fact that has made some nervous.

One of the leading researchers in Hizb ut-Tahrir, Kirstine Sinclair from the University of Southern Denmark, fears that the new board members will use the club to advance their religious agenda.
