Politicians and royals steering clear of grand mosque's opening
When Denmark's largest mosque opens its doors for the first time on Thursday in Copenhagen's Nordvest district, few prominent invitees will be present to take part in the celebrations.
The Royal House, the nation's ministers and most of the seven deputy mayors of Copenhagen have all been invited, but only the city's deputy mayor for social issues, Jesper Christensen, has agreed to show up, according to a survey by DR's radio station P4.
"Some conservative and radicalised sectors can use this as yet another argument against the democratic system and that politicians basically don't want Muslims," Yildiz Akdogan, a Socialdemokraterne City Council member, told DR Nyheder.
