Swedish Mosques claims adherence to Swedish law while simultaneously asserting that the laws of the Quran – permitting e.g. polygamy and mild physical violence against “disobedient” wifes – are immutable and ever valid.
Glad we sorted that out.
This is, to be fair, a solid improvement from an earlier investigation, conducted with hidden cameras, which revealed that nine out of ten Imams actively defended illegal activities, including polygamy and physical violence, and dissuaded women from reporting such crimes to the authorities. The latest investigation indicates that those revelations did initiate debate in the Muslim community, which is positive. The prospect of a centralized or at least regulated Swedish Imam education, to counter those in extremist countries like Saudi Arabia, is yet another positive sign.
