Luxembourg commune closes Muslim prayer room
The commune of Hesperange has closed down a Muslim prayer room in a Howald residential complex following complaints from residents.
The 113 m square commercial space on the ground floor of a block of flats was acquired by Asbl Islamic Centre in 2015. At the time, no mention was made of plans to use the space as a prayer hall.
"The whole case was clumsily handled," said Hesperange mayor Marc Lies. "The current situation does not please me, but every effort to open a dialogue and increase transparency was rejected."
