In Denmark, a prominent mosque has told their congregation that apostates, adulterers and any one who harms a Muslim should be killed. The Mosque chairman defended the sermons, saying, “we believe in Islam”.
Continuing: “If someone violates their marriage, either man or woman, they commit adultery and their blood is thus halal [acceptable under Muslim law, ed.] and they should be killed by stoning. If the woman is a virgin, the punishment is whipping”.
In the clip, the imam advocates an “eye for an eye” policy. “If someone kills a Muslim, then they should be killed,” he says, before adding that anyone who leaves Islam (Apostasy) should also be murdered.
The mosques’s chairman, Oussama El-Saadi, who personal declared his support for IS last year, defended the comments and said the TV2 journalist was a “spy” who had tricked the Imam responsible.
“Our imam needs to answer what he has read on Sharia, when TV2’s spy asks him about Sharia. We can’t cheat and say incorrect things about our religion”, Mr. El-Saadi said.
East Jutland Police said on Twitter that they would “investigate the remarks further and determine if it is a punishable situation”.
