Danish government wants to de-radicalize imprisoned terrorists

Danish imams could soon be teaching Muslims convicted of terror-related activities that terror is not acceptable and doesn’t belong in Islam. The Danish government is at the moment considering the method of letting imams help resocializing imprisoned Muslim terrorists – a method which has proved effective in Saudi Arabia. The Danish imam Abdul Wahid Pedersen finds the initiative very positive and says: “The suggestion is on par with the Danish tradition where a penalty is often combined with resocialization”.

At the moment seven Danes are imprisoned for planning terror. At least two of them will soon be released.
