Of course he would have taught that non-practicing Muslims should be killed. Muhammad is depicted in a hadith as saying: “Certainly I decided to order the Mu’adh-dhin (call-maker) to pronounce Iqama and order a man to lead the prayer and then take a fire flame to burn all those who had not left their houses so far for the prayer along with their houses.” (Bukhari 1.11.626)
An Ethiopian imam of the now closed An’Nur mosque in Winterthur has been charged with inciting people to commit murder.
The Winterthur public prosecutor’s office said in a statement on Friday that the imam was charged on August 2nd with inciting the murder of non-practising Muslims.
He is also accused of having posted violent images of murders on Facebook and giving them to other people….
The public prosecutor is demanding a suspended prison sentence and the man’s expulsion from Switzerland with a 15-year ban on returning.
The imam has been under investigation since early November 2016 when police raided the An’Nur mosque after receiving evidence about a sermon given by the imam in which he called for the murder of Muslims who refused to take part in common prayer….
In February police arrested ten other people in connection with a brutal attack on two Muslims who are thought to have tipped off a journalist about the controversial sermon.
The An’Nur mosque closed its doors in late June after the landlord of the building refused to extend the rental contract.
The mosque was a controversial presence in the northern Swiss city over allegations that it had connections to terror groups and supported the radicalization of young people.
The mosque denied the accusations.
