Larger Muslim community wants apology from mosque and wonders why controversial imam was invited to preach
The sermon took place at the Dar Al-Arqam Mosque in the city's Saint-Michel neighbourhood on Dec. 23, 2016.
Accused of inciting violence
"This is inciting violence, and this is inciting radicalization," said Harvey Levine, regional director of B'nai Brith in Quebec.
"It's against the law and has to be stopped," he said, adding that the complaint was filed with the Montreal hate crimes unit.
Mosque should apologize, says Muslim council
He said the police are still investigating that first instance but says they are not taking action soon enough.
"This is totally unacceptable. We want to know why the hate crimes unit has not done something to date yet. This person should be arrested and charged for hate crimes," said Levine.
