Oxford Mosque's plan to broadcast call to prayer from loudspeaker 'will create Muslim ghetto'

[The Mail Online article follows the comment; after the dotted line.]

This is a typical act of Muslim supremacism and utter arrogance. Who do these Muslims think they are? The amplified chants are used to say: Fuck off - you infidels. We're here to stay. Not only that. You will soon submit to Islam. Either that, or you will convert to Islam.

Islamic Supremacism is also displayed by the size and height of mosques in the UK. But you can also see that mosques are nearly always built near churches. Size matters to Muslims. Height matters. And now noisy amplified Arabic chants matter. All to score points against Churches and against the infidel generally.

The Bishop of Oxford ought to be ashmed of himself. A Islam-sucking Dhimmi. A prize gullible Islam-enabler.
Does he see himself in the Christian martyr role - one who sacrifices himself to Islam for Christianity (or simply to puff up his own pious ego)? Or is it a case of 'turning the other cheek' to every Muslim demand and thus securing oneself a place in heaven? But will it be Heaven or the Paradise of Muslims? Can you really turn the other cheek if doing so results in the death of Christianity and the hegemomy of Islam? Shame on you, Mr Pritchard.

From the Mail Online

Muslim elders at an Oxford mosque have said they intend to push ahead with plans to broadcast a call to prayer from a loudspeaker despite fierce opposition.

Local residents have attacked the idea saying it would disrupt the peace and turn the area into a 'Muslim ghetto'.

But the elders said they still intend to seek planning permission to install the loudspeaker. If granted, they would broadcast a two-minute long call three times a day from the Central Mosque, where up to 700 people gather to worship every Friday.

The idea has gained support from the Bishop of Oxford, the Rt Rev John Pritchard, who last week said those in opposition to the idea should "relax" and "enjoy community diversity".

But residents, who packed out a council meeting last month to signal their outrage, remain set against the plan which they say is an "un-neighbourly intrusion".

They said they would rally to block the proposal when it is submitted to the council in nine months time, when construction on the mosque is complete.

Dr Allan Chapman, 61, who lives near the building, said: "The response against this has been incredible, we have been indundated with calls ranging from stiff upper lip outrage to sheer screaming fury.

"The universal message is what an utter cheek to inflict this on a non-Muslim area of Oxford. If this application goes forward then a large number of angry people are poised to form an opposition to it."

Dr Chapman added the broadcast is not to comparable to the ringing of church bells because: "They are just a signal. The Muslim call is a theological statement."

Residents have said the main objection is the loud amplification of the broadcast. Elizabeth Mills, 56, said: "We don't have a problem with the Imam climbing to the top of the minaret and shouting.

"But we object to electronic amplification. The Bishop of Oxford might say it's ok but he doesn't have to listen to it."

Martin Stott, 53, a member of the Oxford Oratory, added: "This is not an anti-Muslim thing, it is more about community cohesion."

A spokesman for the Central Mosque said that sounding the call to prayer is a traditional part of the religion. Sadar Rana, 68, said: "Building work will take another nine months to a year, it is then that we plan to make an application to the council.

"We want to fix a loudspeak to our minaret to broadcast our call to prayer. We would like to have it three times a day but if that is not accepted, then we would like to have it at least on Fridays.

"We do not need the volume to be loud."
