Stockholm-Attentäter aus Moschee geworfen, weil er versuchte, Extremisten zu rekrutieren

Mr Baksh said: “He arrived at the mosque at the start of Ramadan [the Muslim holy month of fasting] in 2007. We hadn't seen him before but he was very nice, a gentle, bubbly character. People liked him and he was very helpful to them. He was like that for a couple of weeks and he was given the opportunity to preach.

Some of the members brought it to my attention that his views were extreme so I challenged him. It was all about Iraq and Afghanistan. He was saying that Western governments had no right to be there and how too many Muslims remained silent. He said we should be more proactive and take matters into our own hands but he never directly advocated violence. He said the leaders of Muslim nations had to take more action and said scholars here were working for the government.

It was quite serious because some of the worshippers were starting to really listen to him. I talked to him and went through his arguments and countered all of them theologically and he accepted it. I thought that was the end of it but he carried on. So one day, before the end of Ramadan, when the mosque was full I directly challenged all his misinterpretations of Islam. He just stood up and stormed out. We never saw him again - but I heard he'd gone to the Islamic Society at the university and continued to preach his extremist views."

(...) Mr Baksh said that the mosque remained vigilant against infiltration from organised extremist groups. He said: "We removed them from our mosque. We are sick of them.
We see them as problematic. They have a completely distorted view of Islam."
