Court Decision: Controversial Imam should be readmitted to Mosque

Controversial Imam Sheikh Fawaz Jneid has to be given access again immediately to the As-Soennah mosque in The Hague. The board of the mosque has to lift his suspension so that he can preach again as an Imam. This was decided by a judge after Jneid had taken the board of the mosque to court. Otherwise, if the board doesn’t follow the court decision, it risks penalty of up to 30,000 Euro. The Imam became known nationally after he allegedly said about the Dutch media maker Theo van Gogh, who was later murdered: “Oh Lord, give van Gogh a sickness which cannot be cured by all inhabitants in the world.” Jneid says that he is more moderate today.
