Moroccan imam union erected in Utrecht

Moroccan imams in Utrecht have erected their own union. The Moroccan Imam Union (Marokkaanse Imam Bond, MIB) will pose quality demands on imams, give courses and training, advise authorities, and serve as a contact point for the media, said the union’s interim-chairman and imam Yassin Elforkani. Elforkani said he places value on the importance on the organization having a professional profile, saying that not just anyone can call themselves an imam.
