The leader of Muslim imams in Norway has cast doubt over the existence of Osama bin Laden
Imam Zulqarnain Sakandar Madni answered a long string of questions posed by readers of Aftenposten.no on Monday, the fifth anniversary of terrorist attacks on the US.
He contended that even though the vast majority of Muslims firmly oppose terrorism, most believe that the West must understand that extremism and terror are difficult to eradicate as long as civilian Muslims face discrimination and are killed by western acts of war.
Asked for his honest opinion on the terrorist organization al-Qaida and Osama bin Laden, the imam said "I think this is something that’s been made up." He also questioned whether the September 11 attacks were actually orchestrated by Muslims, and lent credence to so-called "conspiracy theories" that suggest otherwise.
Among them is one, portrayed in an American movie, that the American authorities themselves were behind the attacks. Imam Zulqarnain Sakandar Madni said he thinks "there's some good evidence that Bush & Co were behind this. See the film that's called 'Loose Change.' An American film! "
