Norwegian government awards Islamist group 100,000 euros to convert 100-year-old church into a mosque

Kjell Ingolf Ropstad, the leader of the centrist Norwegian Christian People’s Party, has approved a grant for nearly 100,000 euros that will be used by a radical Islamist community to convert a church that’s over 100-years-old into a mosque.

The money will go to the Islamic Cultural Center – an organization that has several Islamic schools in their mosques in Drammen, Oslo, and Mjøndalen where children can stay overnight, Aftenposten reports.

This isn’t the first time Ropstad has awarded large sums of money to the Islamic group. In the past, the Islamic Cultural Center, which has a total of 3,775 registered members, has received nearly 70,000 euros to convert a former Baptist church in Stavanger to a mosque. 

Ropstad also handed them another 20,000 euros to convert the prayer house “The Way” in Skien to a mosque.

Under the same grant type, Søndre Nordstrand Muslim Center has also been awarded nearly 30,000 euros.
