Trustees of Christchurch's Linwood mosque say they have been completely sidelined by a secret deal to build a brand new masjid on the site.

Money for the $10 million mosque, which will be the biggest in the country, has come from the United Arab Emirates, but the current trustees say it is being pushed through by an Australian based businessman with no links to the community.
