A small battle in a larger war

According to Elforkani, the louder call to prayer is partly a response to the social debate about the visibility of Islam in the streets, which flared up again this summer after the introduction of the burka ban. By making Islam that bit more visible in the public space, Amsterdam residents will get more used to the religion as something normal and unrest will disappear, he believes.

Islamic logic: Blaring a cacophony of demonic noise five times a day will lead to less unrest!

Imam Elforkani of the Blauwe Moskee on Henri Dunanstraat expects that the mosque's intention to use loudspeakers will cause a discussion, but not much problems. "Amsterdam is a tolerant city, right?" he said to Parool.

What a snake. Saudi Arabia bans non-Islamic places of worship. Zero churches, synagogues, and temples. Where's the "tolerance" in Islam?
