Contrary to the enemedia Mailonline’s headline, taking away the loudspeakers doesn’t stop the calls to prayer. These loudspeakers aren’t traditional. They couldn’t possibly be. Artificial amplification is a 20th-century invention. Why can’t they call the Muslims to prayer the way they always did? Because that wouldn’t inconvenience and annoy the kuffar nearly enough.
“China removes loudspeakers from hundreds of mosques in Muslim-majority region to stop calls to prayer as anti-religion sentiment rises,” by Sophie Williams, Mailonline, August 24, 2017 (thanks to Mark):
A Chinese county has removed loudspeakers from over 300 mosques after getting noise complaints from neighbours about the call to prayer.
Hualong Hui Autonomous County in China’s Qinghai province has removed over one thousand loudspeakers over three days.
The removal of the call to prayer has angered muslims in the area who have branded the locals as intolerant. It comes as anti-muslim sentiment rises in China and the Chinese government cracks down on people practicing the Islamic faith.
According to a report by state mouthpiece Global Times on August 21, the loudspeakers were removed due to noise complaints.
Environmental protection inspectors allegedly received complaints about noise pollution from local mosques.
Residents close to the places of worship have complained that Islamic calls to prayer wake them up early in the morning and they claim in some cases have aggravated heart conditions of some patients.
Locals were said to have put their support for the new move in posts online encouraging other governments to do the same.
According to Global Times, the call to prayer ritual is not forbidden and Muslims are ‘free to practice their religion across China.’
However in some areas of China such as Xinjiang, the government has been cracking down on Islamic activities. Now in the province, people under 18 are not allowed to visit the mosque while burqas and ‘Islamic looking’ beards have also been banned….
