Polish Muslims will not pray for president
Poles belonging to the Muslim community are calling for changes to a law dating back to 1936, obliging them to pray for the President and the Republic of Poland.
The law regulates the relationship between the state and the Muslim Religious Association and stipulates that Polish Muslims are obliged to pray for the Republic of Poland and its President every week during Friday service, while on national holidays they are bound to say a solemn service for the Republic of Poland, Poland's President, Government and Army.
The Foreign Ministry, along with representatives of Polish Muslims, are working on a draft bill which will abolish the inter-war law and introduce profound changes to the legal status of Muslims in Poland.
