The City Council orders the closure of a mosque in Lleida

Lleida´s City Council has ordered the closure of the mosque in Nord. The Security Councillor has argued that the seating capacity of the mosque has been exceeded several times without attending the town council hearings.

This closure has taken place after the controversial statements made by Abdelwahab Houzi, the imam of the Nord mosque, during a meeting of a mosque federation held last Sunday. Houzi encouraged the participants to take advantage of the Catalonian separatist parties for the promotion of Salafi Islam.
