Seven dumpsters are placed in front of a Mosque

22 February 2013

The president of the Islamic Community Ibicenco-Maghrebi, Redouan Elkharrim, denounced yesterday the installation of seven dumpsters at the gates of the mosque of Navarra de Vila Street, an action he said to ignore why it happened but that he considered “fairly provocative toward Islam.” The City Council, however, said they have changed the location of the deposits as a matter of “health”, since so far they were located at the doors of establishments such as greengrocers.
However, the Counselor for the Environment, Juan Mayans, said that they were ​​available to talk with the President of the Islamic community “in case he wanted to talk” about this issue.
