Call to prayer

Reader comment on item: Britain's Encounter with Islamic Law

Submitted by Jonathan Usher (Canada), Feb 12, 2008 at 22:09

Certain Muslims wished to have a call to prayer in a section of England 7 times a week. This was objected to and the Muslims "compromised" and showed good faith by agreeing to do it only once a week.

This kind of compromise leads to a Muslim society. Imagine if they said that they wanted sharia law and compromised by having sharia law only for family law, That would not only bring in sharia law but the English public would probably say that the result was fine as the Muslims compromised and thereby showed good faith. The Brits will soon be "compromised" and "good faithed" out of their religion and freedoms.
