Mosques baffled by SGP plan to ban calls to prayer: we don't do it in NL, they say
The Dutch Moroccan Mosque Council said on Friday afternoon it is baffled by calls from a fundamentalist Christian party for a ban on the call to prayer.
The SGP, which believes the Netherlands should be run according to Biblical principles, said on Friday that it is including a ban on mosques calling people to attend services in its manifesto for the 2017 general election.
'We are not in the Middle East,' party leader Kees van der Staaij told Radio 1 news. 'We don't have to think it normal to have "Allah is great" sounding through the streets.'
