Denmark wants to deport extremist imams
Danish MPs from across the political spectrum on Thursday were discussing how to deal with imams with extreme views after a highly controversial Aarhus mosque was thrust back into the national spotlight this week.
Marcus Knuth, the integration spokesman for ruling party Venstre, proposed on Thursday that all foreign imams be banned from Denmark following hidden recordings of imams at the Grimhøj Mosque saying that adulterers should be stoned and that children should be beaten for not praying.
Knuth's call came after opposition leader Mette Frederiksen of the Social Democrats suggested that European countries set up a joint system to combat extremist imams that would entail deporting those known to have spoken against democracy or encouraged violence in other countries.
