Mosque Plan Axed After UK Church Pressure!

In this update to the “UK Fighting Back! Churches Oppose Mosque Construction” story, we see what can be done when the Church takes a strong stand to protect life as we know it for our families future generations. Muslims have mastered how to use our freedoms against us to advance Islam, but we have them vastly outnumbered in the West, and have to play the same game to defeat them. If we continue to speak out and build our numbers, we will defeat them!

Mosque Plan Axed After UK Church Pressure
11/03/2010

CAIRO – Under pressures from churches and locals, the town of Camberley, south East England, has voted down by a huge majority plans by the local Muslim community to build a mosque.

Thirty-four of the 36-member Surrey Heath Borough Council voted against a plan by the Bengali Welfare Association to build the mosque, the Daily Mail reported Thursday, March 11.

The council had initially approved the mosque plans proposed by the Berkshire, Hampshire & Surrey Bengali Welfare Association (BWA) in January.

The change of hearts followed a fierce campaign by local churches and residents, who oppose the mosque’s design and site.

The mosque was to be built on the site of a locally-listed Victorian former school bought by Muslims 14 years ago and used as an Islamic center.

UK Churches Oppose Mosque Plan

BWA asserted that the building no longer met the needs of the growing local Muslim community, and people wanted to worship in a mosque and not in a school.

The Churches Together coalition had campaigned against the proposal, saying the mosque would spark “antagonism between the Muslim community and the wider community in Camberley for years to come.”

Many residents where opposed to the fact that the mosque would be located near the Royal Military Academy, while others described it as supremacist statement for Islam.

The English Heritage had also campaigned against the plan, arguing the design does not have high enough architectural quality that allows for demolishing the school.

John Denham, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, had also threatened to review the council’s decision if it approved the mosque plan.

Welcome

The council’s decision was welcomed by a huge burst of applause from opposing locals who packed the 400-seat Camberley Theatre, where the vote was done.

Jubilant scenes followed outside from some residents.

“This is the right result for the people of Camberley, the initial planning application should have been thrown out as the building in question is listed and is sited in a conservation area,” said Nigel Farage, the UK Independence Party MEP for the South East.

“This was never about religion, but about the fair and just process that applies to everyone no matter what faith or belief.”

Conservative council leader Moira Gibson admitted there were “a few racist elements” but said she did not think the campaign was fuelled by Islamophobia.

But the decision disappointed Camberley Muslims.

BWA chairman Abdul Mojid said he felt the vote had been “hijacked by political influence.”

Nahrni Choudhury, who spoke at the meeting on behalf of BWA, accused some of the campaigners of racism.

“I am upset. It’s not just about what the buildings will be,” she said after the meeting.

“It’s about the fact that we are Muslims and we are an ethnic minority and they don’t want to see a mosque here.”

You nailed it, Choudhury!

    If you want mosques, build them in MENA. We sure as hell don't want neither you or your temples on our land.

    When Saudia Arabia starts to allow Christian churches, teaching the Bible there, and apostacy without a death penalty, we should consider allowing mosques to be built. Until then, the existing mosques should be destroyed and none allowed at all.

    Score one for the good guys!

    Tonto, I LOVE your idea of destroying existing mosques ~ most of them are just terrorist nests, so let's not be suicidal, & actually invite them to destroy us.

    Tonto2, I too like the idea of "..the existing mosques should be destroyed and none allowed at all." There is one problem ,and that is we in the West are too civilized to do that. Until we adopt militant way against Muslims/Islam we won't win.Muslims only understand brutal force and that's only thing they understand and respect . That is the reason Israel survives. We should congratulate Mr John Denham and others to put up the fight. Well done.

    I like Tonto's one idea.
    Let Christians build churches in Saudi Arabia and then building a mosque will be considered.
    Not before that.

    It seems only fair that Saudi should allow churches if we are to allow mosques. The 14,992 jihadi attacks on innocent people since 9/11 are a troubling factor as well. Sooner or later, Crusade must take place to clean the corners of the world of the filth that is islam, and when enough outrages have been perpetuated by the muz scum, it will happen.
