Rotterdam: Mosque goers intimidated by administration

Muslims at the Essalaam Mosque who criticize the mosque administration are being intimidated and threatened.

One person claimed he was almost ran over in the vicinity of the mosque. "A day earlier I'd asked why our women were being chased out of the mosque. This was apparently his answer."

Many of the mosque goers are unsatisfied with the fact that three out of the six administrators are workers of the Arab financier from Dubai, as well as with the fact that donations have been misappropriated. The vice-president is accused of trying to intimidate the mosque goers, rounding up people around town in order to do so.

The police are apparently aware of the goings-on and will speak with the people involved. The mosque spokesman claimed to have no knowledge of the incident. The vice president of the mosque was unreachable.
