'Let us not panic over mosque noise complaint'

A mosque situated in Muir Street has been hit with a noise complaint.

Speaking to Mike Wills, District 6 working committee member Shahied Aja says this matter must not be treated as a political matter.

He says the Muir street mosque has been there for over 100 years.

The call to prayer has been there for close to a hundred years and nobody has complained.

Shahied Aja, District 6 working committee

I suspect the complainant is ignorant of our culture and religion. Let us not go into panic moods. It is time for mediation.

Shahied Aja, District 6 working committee

It is every day of the year, and no one has ever complained for over 100 years. This for me calls for mediation.
