Residents in Paris say they’re suffering from lack of sleep due to the too-loud loudspeakers at a local mosque.
The loudspeakers of the Mee-sur-Seine mosque blares forth prayers and songs in both early morning and late night hours, particularly through Ramadan. And nearby residents say they’re tired of it and are losing sleep.
It’s appeasement to the Muslims, pure and simple. You think if another religion disturbed the peace this way that it would be allowed?
No. Suddennly, the city would find its noise ordinances and its permitting police.
“The loudspeakers of a Mée-sur-Seine mosque blasting out prayers and songs in the early hours of the morning through Ramadan caused chaos with the sleep patterns of Parisians living in the French capital’s south-eastern suburb, locals have said.
“As well as operating year-round on Friday afternoons, the loudspeakers were in action from 11.30 pm each night until past 1 am during the Islamic holy month so as to allow Muslims praying on the streets outside, due to lack of space in the mosque, to hear.
“‘The loudspeaker is so intense,’ a resident told Le Parisien. ‘We hear prayers, songs and readings delivered in a fashion that is completely disrespectful of people who follow other religions, and atheists.
“‘Some nights it is impossible to get more than four hours sleep because even after the prayers end, the faithful then engage in discussions which can last for another two hours.’
“The French newspaper reports that frustrated locals said neither Mée-sur-Seine’s mayor, Franck Vernin, nor the police responded to their complaints….
“President of the Union of Seine-et-Marne Muslims, Boudjema Hammache, agreed with Salah, telling Le Parisien: ‘It is a duty to show respect and appeasement to others.'”
