The former imam Ahmed Akkari, who was a central figure during Denmark’s Mohammed crisis, says that imams he supported during the crisis used it for personal gain.
“It seems as if there are some who used (the crisis) to develop a position for themselves somewhere. Or at least they were thinking in more personal terms than normally. That is something I cannot live with or keep quiet about,” Akkari tells DR.
Akkari moved to Greenland following the Mohammed crisis in order to distance himself from the other imams and take status of the situation, although he has not yet made up his mind about his own role.
