Min­is­ter of tol­er­ance cracks the whip

The Citizen (Gauteng) - - WORLD -

– Germany must seek greater con­trol over its mosques in or­der to pre­vent Is­lamist ter­ror­ist at­tacks on its soil, said the United Arab Emi­rates’ min­is­ter for tol­er­ance.

Sheikh Nah­jan Mubarak al Nah­jan said Ger­man au­thor­i­ties are not ex­ert­ing enough con­trol over the in­di­vid­u­als preach­ing in the coun­try’s mosques and that this has led to in­ci­dents such as last year’s Christ­mas mar­ket truck at­tack.

“One can­not sim­ply open a mosque and in­vite ev­ery­one to at­tend and to preach,” Nah­jan said, adding coun­tries such as France, Bri­tain and Bel­gium were mak­ing the same mis­takes in this re­gard. – dpa
