Muslim Mayor: Poisonous Anti-Muslim Act Should Go On
Rotterdam Muslim Mayor Ahmed Aboutaleb has said that he regretted that the anti-Muslim demonstration of Pegida at the Laleili mosque in Rotterdam was cancelled.
He said: However poisonous a message, people should be able to express it.
It is a sign of intolerance if such a message cannot be expressed.
The anti-Islam group Pegida had received a permission from the mayor for a barbeque of pig-meat in front of the mosque during the evening prayer.
