Police on hand as mosque factions meet

“Police will be involved in a meeting today between the board members of an Auckland Islamic centre and supporters of a Salafist imam whom they have banned from the mosque.
The NZ Muslim Association, which runs the Avondale Islamic Centre, has accused Sheikh Abu Abdullah and his supporters of trying to take over the mosque.

The imam follows the Salafi strand of Islam, while many on the board and worshippers at the mosque follow the Hanafi or Shafi’i strand of the faith.”
