City politicians to skip mosque opening
Copenhagen's deputy mayor for culture, Carl Christian Ebbesen (DF), will not attend the opening of Denmark's largest mosque in May.
The mosque is being built on Rovsingsgade in Østerbro using a 150 million kroner grant from the former ruling emir of Qatar, Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani.
While Mohamed Al Maimouni – a spokesperson for Dansk Islamisk Råd (Danish Islamic Council), which is responsible for building the mosque – has previously told The Copenhagen Post that the donation will not impact the mosque's religious line, city politicians are not convinced.
