Prayer session under fire from anti-Islam group
by Ryan Sheales
A row has broken out in a Jewish-dominated area of Melbourne over a Muslim prayer group that meets in a council-owned hall.
The St Kilda Islamic Society has held Friday prayers at the facility for years, but the council now wants to change the venue's permit to formalise the arrangement.
That council decision has given opponents of the prayer group the opportunity to get vocal.
The prayer group started in 2008 with a group of Melbourne taxi drivers who were looking for a place to worship.
