Norwegian Muslims plan replacement Islamic council
30,000 Norwegian Muslims could change membership to a new umbrella organisation set up to replace the controversy-hit Islamsk Råd Norge (Islamic Council Norway, IRN).
The purpose of the breakaway organisation would be near-identical to that of IRN.
"I see no other option than to set up a new organisation," Basim Ghozlan, trustee at the Rabita Mosque in Oslo, told Klassekampen.
IRN's employment of niqab-wearing Leyla Hasic as an administrative consultant has sparked extensive debate on the council's role in promoting dialogue between Muslim communities and the rest of Norwegian society.
