A firebrand cleric who called his daughter ‘Jihad’ has been deported from Italy for preaching radical Islam.
Mohammed Madad, 52, was arrested at his home in Noventa Vicentina in northern Italy, taken to the airport and sent back to Morocco.
He has been banned from entering Italy for the next 15 years over his anti-western sermons and support for terrorist organisations.
In his homeland of Morocco he has a wife and four children, who were also living in Italy until earlier this year. Police said he called one of his two daughters Jihad but released no further details.
Madad headed the Centre of Prayer and Islamic Culture in Noventa Vicentina, where he arrived in December last year from the northern Italian province of Reggio Emilia.
He was found to be preaching radical Islam and as local media reports, he also preached an extremist Salafist ideology.
Salafism is an ultra-conservative reform movement within Sunni Islam that emerged in the second half of the 19th-century and advocated a return to the traditions of the ‘devout ancestors.’
The charges against the Islamic priest include threats to state security in various forms – such as supporting terrorist organisations or activities, including international ones.
They should have banned him and his family for life, not just 15 years.
