Lerida mosque re-opens its doors

20 days after being forced to close its doors on account of the number of assistants exceeding the permitted. The mosque holds a capacity for 240 persons but the assistance to the prayers exceeded some times the 1000. The towns administration had already offered for an alternative location in a industrial zone but the community claims the problem would not be solved as the building would only be able to hold 550 people. The Muslim community plans to build a new mosque on rural grounds counting on the city hall to permit the construction of the building, expected to hold over 2000 people.
