Those with a radical interpretation of Islam should not be allowed to come to Ireland to communicate with the Muslim community, the Imam of the Al-Mustafa Islamic Centre in Dublin has said.
Shaykh Dr Muhammad Umar Al-Qadri said that Islamic radicals are not necessarily here to recruit terrorist fighters, but they should not be allowed to preach to the Muslim community in Ireland.
He said that that many speakers with radical views have come to Ireland.
"They may not necessarily come here with the intention to recruit people, but these people are known to have radical views and a radical interpretation of Islam," he said.
"We in Ireland must take that step that any person that has a radical interpretation of Islam, that does not believe in pluralism, does not believe in integration, does believe that we must impose our faith on others, must not be allowed to come and communicate and be in touch with the Muslim community here."
