Bulgarien griper salafistisk imam för shariapropaganda

Bulgariska polisen har gripit en
salafistisk terrorgrupp på 13
personer, som under ledning
av imam Said Mutlu arbetat
mot Bulgariens demokratiska
statsskick för att istället införa
sharia, berättar Sofia Globe.
"Following a joint operation in 2010 by Bulgaria’s
Interior Ministry and the State Agency for National
Security, 13 alleged members of radical Islamist
organised Al Waqf al Islam have been charged
with preaching Salafism and the imposition of
Sharia law, it emerged on June 18 2012.
Prosecutors said that the group had propagated
an ideology that was “anti-democratic, expressed
in opposition to the principles of democracy,
separation of powers, liberalism, a rule-of-law
state, basic human rights such as gender equality
and religious freedom”.
The group allegedly spread their message during
Friday prayers in mosques, and through lectures,
sermons and meetings in cafes.
During the operation, literature in Arabic was seized,
along with financial documents, cash and computers.
If found guilty, the alleged leader, imam Said Mutlu,
could face up to 12 years in jail. Other members of
the group could be sentenced to up to 10 years in jail."
