Moderate Muslims Feel Threatened by Radical Ones

Representatives of the moderate Ahmadiyya community in the Netherlands have said that they receive hate letters and feel threatened by radical Muslims. The latter incite against them. The Ahmadiyya movement constructed the first mosque in the Netherlands in 1955 which became the victim of arson in 1987. The perpetrators were never found. Much of the incitement against the Ahmadiyya movement, which has 150-200 million followers worldwide, originates in Pakistan where they are not allowed to call themselves Muslims. The Ahmadiyya spokesmen said that they wanted to warn Dutch politicians that they must prevent extremism in the Netherlands from growing any further.
