Muslim call to prayer from Tower Bridge weeks after Christian preacher cuffed in capital

May 8, 2021 by

from Foxhole News:

Website Arab News reports that the performance “marked the end of an iftar hosted by Tower Hamlets Homes, the East London Mosque & London Muslim Center and Tower Hamlets Interfaith Forum”, and follows Rahman’s performance of the adhan at Canary Wharf last year.

“After delivering the adhan in Canary Wharf last year, I realized that the call to prayer is such a strong message and that I was sending it out across the world via social media” he said.

His video last year reportedly went viral, with Raham saying that he was initially shocked by the reaction but “then I realized that this is the word of God and the call to prayer and therefore it’s bound to reach that many people.”

But members of the public on social media have been outraged by the footage, which sees Metropolitan Police officers stand around the marked off performance while Rahman calls into a microphone from the iconic London landmark, following the treatment of Pastor John Sherwood in west London recently.
