Imam banned in 'extreme Islam' row
A Muslim imam accused of teaching "extreme Islam" has been barred for a second time from his Auckland mosque sparking a row between worshippers.
Security guards were called at the end of 12.30pm prayers at the Avondale Islamic Centre yesterday to remove supporters of Sheikh Abu Abdullah, a Salafist imam, from the prayer room where they were seeking support for a "mosque takeover".
Police vehicles were also stationed within the car park at the Blockhouse Bay Rd mosque, and outside, as prayers were conducted in the centre's main prayer room.
