Death Threat against Founder of Islamic Party

There are strong disagreements in the Orthodox Islamic Party of the Unity (Partij van de Eenheid) in The Hague. One of its founders, former secretary Muhammet Yilmaz, an imam has been removed by the chairman from the board and been replaced by the chairman’s female cousin. A male cousin of the chairman was already chairman of the board. Yilmaz has told the migrant broadcaster Demet TV that he has received a death threat. The party is also in the media because of its municipal council member Arnoud van Doorn. He is a former member of the populist Freedom Party and has recently been condemned for selling drugs to minors.
