The Muslim Judicial Council (MJC) has urged community members to communicate and negotiate regarding the establishment of new mosques and the Azan (Islamic call to prayer) in their areas.
This comes after Langebaan resident Liam Christian Ferreira posted a controversial Facebook rant calling for a mosque to burn down at the weekend.
The MJC's Moulana Shuaib Appleby says traditionally mosques have been established in areas where Muslim people resided during apartheid's Group Areas Act.
He explains that democracy has seen the migration of the Muslim community to new areas and the building of new places of prayer.
According to Appleby, other residents sometimes feel offended by the loudspeakers broadcasting their call to prayer five times a day.
He has also called on locals to reflect on whether their concerns and issues are not internalised prejudice.
