Via Copenhagen Post:
The City Council’s Environment and Technical Committee has given its final approval to zoning changes that will permit the construction of two mosques, one in the Amager district and one in the Nordvest district.Iranian organizations in Denmark fear the Shia mosque planned for the Nordvest district will serve as a center for Iranian-led extremism.
Last night's 9-2 vote brings an end to nearly four decades of discussion about building the city’s first proper mosque.
Muslim groups are applauding the move. They say the vote sends a message that the city respects their religion and views it on an equal footing with other faiths.
Others, however, have voiced their opposition, particularly due to the design of the Nordvest building
