“Even 10 years in prison will not scare us Muslims,” says imam indicted for quoting his prophet.
Copenhagen-based imam Mundhir Abdallah is the first to be indicted for breaking Denmark’s new so-called imam law. The Danish police claim that Mundhir Abdallah has called for the killing of Jews by quoting a famous statement by Islam’s holyest prophet, Mohammad. According to police, Abdullah said:
“The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews so that the Muslims kill them, and the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdullah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.” The quote is from the Islamic hadith by Sahih Muslim, 041:6985.
“These are heinous statements, and I think it is quite right that the court now has an opportunity to assess the case,” says Advocate General Eva Rønne from the State Prosecutor’s office.
