World Muslim League, some Italy's imams 'ignorant'
Tasked with reorganizing Italy's Muslim community, World Muslim League new president in Italy, Fareed Alkhotani, called the community "the worst" in Europe for dialogue and inclusion, telling reporters the Italian Muslim people is often ignorant of the Koran, not able to integrate into Italian society, closed in a way apart and led by some imams who are not well prepared and, consequently, unable to prevent and combat Al Qaeda or Isis terrorist ideas.
Alkhotani said, "Muslims in Italy do not have a thorough understanding of the Islamic religion and are not able to dialogue with the national government, as opposed to what they do communities in Austria, Belgium, France and Germany".
Italy's approximately 1.7 millions Muslims are divided into two thousand mosques, associations, cultural centers that often go in separate directions. According to the World Muslim League, the Muslim minority in Italy has the worst relationship in Europe in regard to faith and residence country.
