Denmark: Parliament looking into closing controversial mosque

The controversial mosque in Grimhøj in Aarhus is a step closer to being shut down in the wake of a DR1 documentary aired this week showing the mosque’s members cheering on Islamic State (IS) and criticising democracy.

Danske Folkeparti has called for a debate next week concerning the issue, and every party bar Enhedslisten has called on the justice minister, Mette Frederiksen, to look into the possibility of closing down the mosque.

”The Grimhøj mosque has helped spawn terrorists and we need to stop that,” Martin Henriksen, the DF spokesperson for immigration issues, told DR Nyheder.

”The Grimhøj mosque’s imams have several times encouraged violence against Jews, and I really hope this will be enough to declare the mosque illegal”…
