Israeli mayor calls for banning Muslim call for prayer in Jerusalem

PNN/ Jerusalem/
The Hebrew Radio on Thursday said that the Israeli mayor of Jerusalem, Nir Brakhat, has issued a resolution to Israeli officials and police, calling for halting Adhan (Muslim call for prayer) in Jerusalem because it is “noisy.”

According to the radio, Brakhat sent a letter to the head of the Israeli police in Jerusalem, Major General Yuran Helevi, asking him to cooperate on the issue to find a solution to stop what he called “the noise”, adding that he received several complaints about it.

This morning as well, a group of Israeli settlers from Pisgat Ze’ev settlement held a demonstration outside Brakhat’s house, complaining about the Adhan sound.

This is not the first time such call is made.

In march, Israeli right-wing MK, Moti Yoges, had proposed a vote to restrict the Adhan on loudspeakers, an idea that was presented in previous years as well.
