Chairman not welcome in Mosque
The reason that the board of the mosque decided he is no longer welcome is things he said during the “Nederland is niet kapot te krijgen“ (Translation: The Netherlands is unbreakable) media campaign. A campaign launched after the murder on Theo van Gogh with government money that preached tolerance. In the campaign he has said that he also visited synagogues and churches. On a billboard, that was showed at 6000 bus stops, Maddoe was quoted saying: “I also want to preach in other peoples parish… and also listen”. But now Maddoe complains:
”Some people in the mosque think that is not allowed and thus I am not allowed to come any more”
But the board of the mosque denies that he is no longer welcome. Today (Friday) the mosque will hold a general meeting with all its members about the affair.
