Belgium: Moroccan Imams Criticized for "Monolingualism"
Morocco World News
Montasser AlDe'emeh, a Belgian researcher and specialist in Islamic radicalization and international jihad, has criticized Moroccan Imams for being "monolingual."
Montasser AlDe'emeh says, "The fact that, Imams are monolingual, hinders them from delivering their social messages to the Belgian youth who turn into hardliners," according to Belgian news website levif.
"It is a shame that, after fifty years, Imams still do not speak Dutch or French, as we still have to import them from Morocco. It is simply outrageous that the Belgian authorities do not impose language requirements on the Imams," he adds.
