The mega mosque! Muslim place of worship with four times the capacity of St Paul's Cathedral planned for east London
Plans for a 10,000-capacity mega-mosque the size of Battersea Power Station have led to fears it could create a hardline Islamic enclave in the capital.
The east London mosque, earmarked for West Ham, near the Olympic Park, will hold four times as many worshippers as St Paul's Cathedral, have 40ft minarets, an Islamic library, sports facilities and eight flats for visiting clerics.
It has been described by the architects as a 'contemporary Islamic sacred space'.
