Spanish Muslims denounce the displacement of their mosques

03 June 2013

The president of the Union of the Islamic Communities of Spain, Riay Tatary, has criticized the “exile” with which “some municipalities” want to “punish” their mosques by moving them to “uninhabited areas such as industrial ones” or the suburbs. Tatary also added that this measure of the urbanization plans makes it harder for the believers to attend the services, to pray five times a day or just to go to the mosque in a daily basis.
