Pankow Mosque Can be Built

Berlin – After indications from district mayor Burkhard Kleinert (Left Party), the construction of a mosque in Berlin-Pankow is no longer in question. When the Ahmadiyya Muslim Union applied for a building permit, they should have recieved one immediately. The opposition to their application had no legal foundation, said Kleinert in an interview. It will be the first mosque in eastern Berlin. Local opposition to the mosque is strong.
