Council concerned about Salafist school plans in Rotterdam
Salafist Muslims in Rotterdam have bought a 7,000 square metre former trade school and are turning into an educational institute, the NRC said on Friday.
The sales agreement was signed by a Dutch Egyptian with links to controversial Muslim organisations in the Netherlands and was bought via a German property firm with money from the Middle East, the NRC reported.
While this is not illegal, it does go against government efforts to get a grip on the financing of Salafist organisations in the Netherlands, the NRC said. Neither the city council or locals were aware of the sale, the paper said.
