Aarhus blocks plans for grand mosque
The sale of a plot of land for the construction of a grand mosque has been cancelled by Aarhus Municipality.
The movement to block the sale of the land at Bautavej 1 in the neighbourhood of Gellerup was approved by a majority in the city's municipal council on Wednesday.
"The Social Democrats have lost confidence in this specific project, because a number of the associations involved in it have been revealed to hold opinions which are incompatible with our democracy and legal system. It was therefore necessary to cancel the proposal," Aarhus Mayor Jacob Bundsgaard told Jyllands-Posten.
