Four big mosques in The Hague, Rotterdam, Amsterdam, and Utrecht have decided to temporarily close the doors during communal prayer moments in order to prevent ill-intending people to enter.

The mosques have decided to implement this safety measure because they are severly concerned about the safety of visitors after the attack on a mosque in Quebec. A spokesperson speaks of a rigorous measure, because the houses of worship say to want to be open to everyone.

The Board of Morrocan Mosques Netherlands (Raad van Marokkaanse Moskeeën Nederland) has also expressed its concern for the safety of Dutch moques.
