BRITAIN could have its first Sharia-controlled zone if plans for a mega-mosque more than four times the size of St Paul’s Cathedral get the go-ahead.
The East London mosque, known as the Riverine Centre, will hold 9,312 worshippers, compared to 2,400 at St Paul’s.
The 16-acre site in West Ham will include 40ft minarets, an Islamic library, a dining hall, multi-use games areas, tennis courts, sports facilities and eight flats for visiting Muslim clerics.
Islamist group Tablighi Jamaat has submitted updated plans for what Cambridge-based architects NRAP are calling a “contemporary Islamic sacred space” the size of Battersea Power Station.
They also insisted facilities for the wider non-Muslim community in East London would be minimal and disguise Tablighi’s real aim to establish a global base.
The group has been dubbed an “antechamber of fundamentalism” by French intelligence officials.
Two of the July 7 bombers, Shehzad Tanweer and Mohammad Sidique Khan, and failed shoe bomber Richard Reid, left, are believed to have prayed at a Tablighi mosque in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire.
Alan Craig, campaign director of MegaMosque- NoThanks, said: “Newham Council wants a mixed use of the site with homes, shops and business units.
“The mosque trustees say they want to build a mosque the size of Battersea Power Station.
“Either way, it will be the UK’s first custombuilt Sharia-controlled zone.”
His comments follow the shelving of plans for retail units and 300 flats after the Muslim community said they did not want their donations going to a commercial venture.
The mosque will form the centrepiece and will include a prayer hall for 7,440 men and a separate prayer facility on an upper level for 1,872 women.
NRAP director Richard Owers said the site represented a “genuinely West Ham mosque” because, aside from the minarets which were a key requirement of the client, the design involved a “subtle underplaying of traditional Islamic architecture”.
Meanwhile, trustees of the Riverine Centre, which runs the Tablighi Jamaat site, said: “The feedback received from the general Newham community from the public consultation held in February this year clearly demonstrated there is tremendous and overwhelming all-round support for our vision of turning a barren post-industrial landscape into an oasis for the benefit of everyone.”
A Newham Council spokesman said: “We can confirm we have received a planning application.
“As this is currently being processed it would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage.”
What was I saying yesterday? About the praying in the grounds of Westminster Abbey???
NOW they want a “mega-mosque” FOUR TIMES THE SIZE of St. Paul’s Cathedral.
ST. PAUL’S CATHEDRAL.
They don’t need one! Are there really that many muslims in West Ham to necessitate a building of this size? Seriously? For a community of individuals that we are told only make up 3% of the population of the entire country of Britain, they have a serious amount of mosques as it is.
Take a look on this site, via Google maps, it shows where all the mosques are and the number: UK Mosque Directory
Take a visit to London, visit St. Paul’s, see how big it actually is, then imagine that this place is going to be Four Times the size.
Is there a NECESSITY?
No. There is not. Not for a 3% minority population of people.
There is a website for the campaign to stop this happening: MegaMosqueNoThanks.com
Read my comment in the article yesterday about Westminster Abbey.
It is all about SUBVERSION. And being SLY. And TAQQIYA.
We can’t have this happen in this country. If this is allowed to go ahead, it will be the beginning of the end. We already have vigilantes trying to enforce a “Sharia Zone” in certain parts of East London.
Feel free to ignore all this, if you wish to hand your country and your freedom over on a silver plate. Feel free to do nothing.
But, do not come crying to us when the shit hits the fan.
No Surrender. Ever. J xx
