Sweden: Police to grant Islamic group right to broadcast call to prayer, refuse to consult the public on the matter


Now comes word that:

Police in the Swedish municipality of Karlskrona are expected to grant the local Islamic association the right to broadcast the call to prayer in public and are refusing to consult local residents on the decision because it would be too much hard work.

The mainstream Islamic Cultural Association in Karlskrona is pushing for the loud broadcast.

“Local Church of Sweden Archbishop Fredrik Modeus who called it a ‘well thought-out decision’ and once compared the Muslim call to prayer to church bells.” This misguided man, like so many, does not know that in Islamic law:

dhimmis are “forbidden to openly display wine or pork…to ring church bells or display crosses…recite the Torah or Evangel aloud, or make public display of their funerals and feastdays” (Reliance of the Traveller, o11.5(6)).

In March, Swedish Education Minister Gustav Fridolin told the “Hungarian government and ruling Fidesz party to stop using Sweden as an example of failed mass migration policies.” Unfortunately, Sweden is clearly the model of everything not to do with immigration policy.

“Police in Swedish Municipality Refuse to Consult Public on Islamic Call to Prayer Broadcast,” by Chris Tomlinson, Breitbart, May 16, 2018:

Police in the Swedish municipality of Karlskrona are expected to grant the local Islamic association the right to broadcast the call to prayer in public and are refusing to consult local residents on the decision because it would be too much hard work.

The Islamic Cultural Association in Karlskrona expects to receive a positive decision from the local police early next week on whether they will be allowed to continue to broadcast the call to prayer, Swedish broadcaster SVT reports.

The request, which was passed on to the police following a referral by the environment and social committee, would see the call to prayer be broadcast from the minarets of the Kungsmarken mosque, one of the largest in the country.

The mosque had previously begun to issue the call to prayer in November 2017, but shortly after it had emerged the Muslim association had not applied for the correct licencing and so the call to prayer was temporarily stopped.

The decision will come only weeks after the Islamic Association in the town of Växjö was granted the ability to publicly broadcast the call to prayer every Friday in the early afternoon by police and the local government.

The move was even celebrated by local Church of Sweden Archbishop Fredrik Modeus who called it a “well thought-out decision”….
