UK: Mosque’s weekly call to prayer broadcast approved, objections dismissed as ‘racist’



Has the entirety of Britain, and the Western world in general, been afflicted with terminal idiocy? There is no conceivable way that this issue has anything to do with race, unless the Muslims who attend Farooq E Azam Mosque and Islamic Centre are all of one race and Muslims of all other races are barred from the premises.

The adhan, prayed in Arabic, repeats “Allahu akbar,” that is, “Allah is greater,” i.e., greater than you god or anything else that may claim your allegiance, six times, “I testify that there is no god but Allah” three times, and “I testify that Muhammad is Allah’s prophet” twice.

Dr. Gavin Ashenden, former chaplain to the British queen, who resigned his position in protest against a Qur’an reading in a Scottish church, observed that “the Muslim call to prayer is a dramatic piece of Islamic triumphalism. It proclaims Islam’s superiority over all other religions, and in so doing casts Jesus in the role of a charlatan and a liar. The Muslim god, Allah, is unknowable and has no son. Jesus was, therefore, a fraud in claiming He and the Father are one.”

Is Stockton really wise to broadcast repeatedly a declaration of the superiority of Islam, a faith that directs its adherents to make war against Christians and other non-Muslims and subjugate them as inferiors under the hegemony of believers (cf. Qur’an 9:29)?

Is Stockton wise to broadcast the cry “Allahu akbar,” beloved of jihad terrorists the world over? Chief 9/11 hijacker Mohammed Atta wrote this in his letter to himself before carrying out his jihad mission: “When the confrontation begins, strike like champions who do not want to go back to this world. Shout, ‘Allahu Akbar,’ because this strikes fear in the hearts of the non-believers.” This is why the Fort Hood jihad killer, Nidal Malik Hasan, shouted it as he shot thirteen Americans in November 2009, and why so many other jihadis have used it essentially as an announcement that non-Muslims are about to die.

Celebrate diversity!

“Mosque’s weekly call to prayer allowed as ‘campaign to whip up tension’ fails,” by Gareth Lightfoot, Gazette Live, November 24, 2022 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

A mosque’s proposal to broadcast a call to prayer once a week has received overwhelming support from councillors.

The Farooq E Azam Mosque and Islamic Centre asked for planning permission to broadcast the azan call to prayer on Fridays between 12 and 2pm. The call from the mosque on Bowesfield Lane, Parkfield, Stockton would last no more than two minutes and would be no louder than a vacuum cleaner under planning conditions.

As Stockton Council considered the proposal, planning services manager Simon Grundy said officers balanced the right to religious practice with the right of nearby residents to enjoy their homes. He said some might find the amplified call “intrusive”.

But he said conditions to lessen the impact, including the prayer being read just once for no more than two minutes, location of loudspeakers, controls over the decibel level and a noise suppressor, would “strike an appropriate balance”. He said: “With those controls we do not consider there is impact and harm.”…

Councillor Louise Baldock, representing Parkfield and Oxbridge, supported the plan saying the call to prayer would last a much shorter time than churches are allowed to ring bells. “It’ll bring much pleasure to the Muslim community,” she told the committee….

“The majority of the objections seem to be from people who object to the Muslim faith. Some of the comments have been so racist in nature that I’m surprised frankly that we’ve allowed them to be published.

“An anonymous leaflet was circulated, mostly in Hartburn and Oxbridge, asking residents to object to these proposals, part of an orchestrated campaign to whip up tension in the local community. I’m delighted that despite this campaign, so few residents fell into the trap.

“Local people are not objecting in their droves. There are 37 objections, most of them live at least a mile away from the mosque. I’m proud that Stockton is not a racist town.”…
