Re: Swiss to Ban MinaretsDec 5th, 2009
Minarets and call to prayer are two totally different things, juan. They donít need minarets to issue call to prayers. Anyway, Swiss wonít be able to ban any call to prayers by banning minarets, Muslims can simply use a microphone and blare it all over the city.
If Swiss do not want to be disturbed first thing in the morning, they will have to ban the call to prayer. Anyway, isnít call to prayer banned in most Canadian cities? One does not hear any call to prayer at 5 or 6 a.m. in any Canadian city. If Muslims could, I am sure they would give an early morning call to prayers.
Btw, in an earlier post I talked about staying in the Embassador Hotel in Istanbul which is very close to the famous Blue Mosque. The loud "singers" I complained about were somewhere high in the mosque.....I thought they were in the minarets.
