Via the Copenhagen Post:
This coming Sunday the youth department of the Danish Islamic Community will host a conference with controversial preacher Bilal Philips as one of the main speakers.
Philips has previously been banned entry to the UK and Australia, where he is regarded as a potential threat to society.
A famous Muslim scholar who has written several books, Philips is featured in numerous YouTube videos in which he promotes Sharia law and condemns Shia Muslims and homosexuals.
In one video he describes AIDS as “God’s punishment of homosexuals” and argues in favour of the death penalty for homosexuals. Another video shows Philips defending suicide bombings, arguing that such attacks should be viewed as “a legitimate form of warfare”.
The conference featuring Philips is scheduled to take place at the Korsgadehallen in the Nørrebro district on Sunday. It is arranged by Munida, the youth department of the Danish Islamic Community.
The head of Munida, Imran Shah, said he was not aware that Philips preached extremist views.
