AMSTERDAM — A controversial imam has given a sermon at a mosque in Eindhoven despite a court-imposed ban.
A Muslim organisation had requested the court order after the imam regularly made radical and inflammatory statements, Radio Netherlands reported.
Imam Kariman first became notorious in 2001 when he used obscene and insulting language to describe same-sex relationships to an audience of children.
On Sunday, the imam and a group of his young supporters demanded that he be allowed to lead prayers in the mosque.
The Anwar-e-Medina mosque said it allowed him to lead the service to prevent a disturbance.
