Imagine if you worked the late shift and were woken up at 6am by a loud call – and by loud we mean overbearing. Imagine if this was happening in cities around America. Well folks it is and people are complaining. The residents of the Hamtramck Senior Plaza are situated across from the Ideal Islamic Center and have to put up with all that ruckus. They are ignoring any local noise ordinances in place. You can’t use a jackhammer at that time so why should the mosque get away with it?
Jeanette Powell, one of the local residents is annoyed that the volume is so loud. And rightly so! Thankfully the police went to pay them a visit and the mosque claims they have since lowered the volume on their call to prayer. Carol Marsh, another of the residents, states the center never indicated it would be a mosque before opening. See that’s how it done. Bit by bit, they step in and make changes to our American way of life.
Freedom Daily reports:
Turns out one of the mosques in question wasn’t supposed to be a mosque – they pulled a zoning jihad on the city before it was run by Muslims. Now they are threatening legal jihad after being exposed.
The debate over the Muslim call to prayer is reverberating once again.
At last week’s city council meeting, several residents of the Hamtramck Senior Plaza apartments on Holbrook complained about the volume level of the call to prayer coming from the Ideal Islamic Center, located across from the apartment complex.
Jeanette Powell said she’s not complaining as a way to “bash anyone’s religion.”
She said the call or prayer was broadcast at 6 a.m. and found the volume “overbearing.”
“Just turn it down a little bit.”
Carol Marsh said not only was the call to prayer too loud, she insisted that the organizers of the center never said it would serve as a mosque.
“We were lied to,” she said. “We were told it would never be turned into a mosque.”
But Sakrul Islam of the center said no one ever said it would not be a mosque, saying an Islamic center “covers everything.”
He warned Marsh that if she continued claiming she was lied to he would file a defamation lawsuit.
He also denied accusations that the call to prayer was broadcast earlier than 6 a.m. Islam said he has since turned down the volume when the police department informed him of the complaints.
