Sweden: After getting permission in one city, Muslims now plan to broadcast call to prayer all over the country

While a clear majority of Swedes are against broadcasting the Call to Prayer, Muslims now seem to want them all over the country, Fria Tider reports. Avdi Islami, spokesman of Växjö’s Muslim Foundation, explains that he wants more mosques to do the same as in Växjö and apply for permission for prayer calls, so that the Muslim message can be heard across the country.

The Bishop of Växjö, Fredrik Modéus, openly supported the Växjö Muslim Foundation’s application for the call to prayer. Police announced the acceptance of “Växjö Muslim’s application to send prayer calls via speakers at the local mosque once a week, every Friday.” In March, the Växjö mosque that applied to broadcast the call to prayer asked Allah to “destroy the Jews.”

A former imam, Tomas Samuel, who is now a Christian apologist, warned that the Muslim call to prayer “shows power and control over the country.” And applications to broadcast loud Muslim calls to prayer are not unique to Sweden.

Turkish leader Recep Tayyip Erdogan declared months ago that “we are struggling so that a foreign flag will not be waved anywhere where adhan [the Islamic call to prayer] is recited.”
Also in February, a German court banned outdoor Muslim calls to prayer because of local complaints over the content of the chant, which set Islam above Christianity.
In January 2017 in Britain, a row broke out after an Islamic call to prayer was held inside the historic Gloucester Cathedral.
Last year, Israel moved to mute the early morning call to prayer over loudspeakers at mosques, because residents had become enraged over loss of sleep.
Meanwhile, a woman in Austria, recovering from a stroke and neck injury, complained to staff about loud Islamic prayers in her hospital room; she was told to see a psychologist.

“After permission in Växjö, Swedish Muslims now want to send calls to prayer all over the country,” by Joshua Cullen, Voice of Europe (thanks to The Religion of Peace), May 10, 2018:

Getting permission for the call to prayer in Växjö was just the beginning for Sweden’s Muslims. While a clear majority of Swedes are against broadcasting the Call to Prayer, Muslims now seem to want them all over the country, Fria Tider reports.

Avdi Islami, spokesman of Växjö’s Muslim Foundation, explains that he wants more mosques to do the same as in Växjö and apply for permission for prayer calls, so that the Muslim message can be heard across the country.

“We want to call out at more places. There are many Muslims who are Swedish citizens, who have the same rights as everyone else,” he says.

At the same time, Islami says the intention is not to “disturb” anyone. According to him, however, Sweden must respect that people have “different messages”. He denies that Swedes fear that Islam is now spreading in the country…..
