DENK is pressuring mosque leaders to urge their congregations to vote for the party, according to the council of Moroccan mosques in the Netherlands RMMN. Multiple mosque leaders have complained about undue pressure from the political party, NOS reports. 

"Mosque leaders are free to give political parties a platform if they want and there is nothing wrong with that", RMMN spokesperson Said Bouharrou said to the broadcaster. "But you cross a line if you, like DENK, indicate that you have to vote right, otherwise you are a traitor."
