Controversial mosque allowed to be build in Gouda

Although the town council of Gouda has yet to agree on the matter, the College of Mayors and Aldermen have decided that the so-called ‘mega mosque’ is allowed to be build. Despite criticism from people in the neighbourhood. Political party CDA (Christian Democratic Appel) is ‘astonished’, because at this point there is still an investigation going on with regards to the funding of the mosque. There exists namely a fear that a lot of funding is coming from international Salafi networks, which is being denied by the College itself.
