Mosque linked to Muslim terror forced to install CCTV to monitor its worshipers

MUSLIMS at a mosque which was closed after it was accused of being “a breeding ground for Jihadists” will now worship under the watchful eye of CCTV.

Before reopening, the mosque had to commit to installing CCTV cameras both inside and outside the prayer hall: one by the entrance to monitor worshippers’ comings and goings and five inside the prayer hall.

Mosque officials then had to set up a website to “visibly condemn all messages of a radical nature,” and a surveillance team whose job is to keep watch on local worshippers and look out for suspicious behaviour.

They also had to replace the imam – an extremist suspected of preaching radical Salafism, a fundamentalist strain of Sunni Islam, and of encouraging Muslim youths to join the jihad – with a moderate preacher ‘pre-approved’ by the interior ministry.
