In a follow-up to last week’s interview, Ibrahim Halawa’s father Hussein holds forth on fatwas, radicalisation and running Ireland’s largest mosque

The religious Imam Hussein Halawa, who heads up Ireland’s biggest mosque in the Dublin suburb of Clonskeagh, was interviewed in this newspaper last weekend.

He discussed the lengthy incarceration of his son Ibrahim in an Egyptian jail, as well as fatwas (religious edicts) and issues ranging from his life in Ireland to the lifting of the ban on female drivers in Saudi Arabia. He also denied he was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
