The city of Moscow has now decreed that there will be no new mosques built, and has implemented a strict ban against their construction for the foreseeable future.
The mayor of Moscow, Sergei Sobyanin, said:
“No new building permits will be issued. I think that’s enough mosques for Moscow.”
On a radio show Sobyanin sternly made it clear on the religious and cultural tensions arising between traditional Russians and Muslims:
“Muscovites are becoming irritated by people who speak a different language, have different customs, and display aggressive behavior. This is not a purely ethnic issue, but it is connected with some ethnic characteristics”.
Muslims of course are on the protest against what they believe is an act of bigotry and “Islamophobia.”
Rushan Abbyasov, of Russian Council of Muftis said:
“It’s quite clear that a mosque should be built in every district of the city soon”
What do you think about this? Should America do the same and ban further construction of Mosques?
