The boards of mosques in the Baarsjes district of Amsterdam have draw up the protocol to make clear they are doing everything to counter extremism and to stop the radicalisation of their congregations.
Balkenende will receive the document on Monday morning, the government information service RVD said on Thursday.
Entitled ‘Preventie Extremisme’ (Prevention of Extremism), the code stems from an initiative introduced by the Baarsjes municipal council following the assassination of filmmaker Theo van Gogh in November 2004.
As part of the Contract met de Samenleving (Contract with Society), mosques undertook to work more closely with local government and other agencies to support freedom of speech and counter extremist behaviour.
