Giant Mosque Approved in Oldham

A plan to build a giant mosque in Oldham, Greater Manchester has been given the go-ahead.

Just listen to the dhimmitude-drenched outpourings of the local council:

Local muslims breathed a sigh of relief when plans to build a giant mosque and community centre on public open space opposite Werneth Park were finally approved.

Councillors voted in favour of the new facility proposed for land on Manchester Road, Werneth, at the third attempt.

The building will have four floors with a multi-use leisure hall at lower ground floor; the main prayer hall, office and toilets at ground floor; and another hall, classrooms and multi-use activity rooms at first and second floors. The main hall will accommodate 400 people, the second hall a further 80 people and another 310 people in a women’s hall and the activity rooms.

Alan Chorlton, the agent for applicant Ummah Welfare Trust, said the building would be open to all communities and have an attractive design.

He also asked councillors to approve the hours of worship from sunrise to after sunset during the summer as prayer times varied.

Supporting the plan, Councillor Christine Wheeler said: “I have never heard or read in the Chronicle that there has been noise disturbance at mosques at sunrise so we should agree.”

Councillor Rod Blyth said: “This is the way forward. If we had a Catholic church would we ban them from having midnight mass? No we wouldn’t because that’s their religion.”

Councillor Stephen Bashforth described the proposed building as magnificent and praised the work of the community who have been behind the scheme. A previous scheme was refused on the basis that the development would result in the loss of an attractive piece of open space in a densely populated urban area.

But planning officers said the new application outlined the wider benefits the scheme will deliver — particularly replacing the open area with a community facility of greater quality that would be more usable by the wider community.

The scheme was approved with prayer times an hour before sunrise and an hour -and-a-half after sunset.

'Magnificent', 'the way forward', 'Ummah Welfare Trust'.

These people are clapping and cheering the conquest and subjugation of their own country.

As for the notion that the mosque will 'be open to the wider community', does that mean teenage girls will be able to go in without covering their heads or walking 5 paces behind the menfolk?

It is palpably not for the larger community but for one increasingly dominant segment of it - and that is the problem.

“Islam makes it incumbent on all adult males, provided they are not disabled and incapacitated, to prepare themselves for the conquest of [other] countries so that the writ of Islam is obeyed in every country in the world. But those who study Islamic Holy War will understand why Islam wants to conquer the whole world…. Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those [who say this] are witless. Islam says Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all! Does this mean that Muslims should sit back until they are devoured by [the unbelievers] Islam says Kill them [the non-Muslims], put them to the sword and scatter [their armies]. Does this mean sitting back until [non-Muslims] overcome us Islam says Kill in the service of Allah those who may want to kill you! Does this mean that we should surrender to the enemy Islam says Whatever good there is exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! The sword is the key to Paradise, which can be opened only for Holy Warriors! There are hundreds of other [Koranic] verses and Hadiths [sayings of the Prophet] urging Muslims to value war and to fight. Does all that mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim.”

Ayatollah Khomeini from 1942
