This mosque makes a statement, and is intended to make a statement, about the Muslim presence in Britain — its permanence, its influence, and its relationship to the non-Muslim community. And is anyone going to be working to ensure that jihad and Islamic supremacism aren’t preached there? Don’t be Islamophobic!
Plans for the construction of a five-storey building which will be one of London’s biggest mosques have been given the go-ahead.
Harrow Central Mosque will serve Muslim worshippers from across north London when it is built on Station Road. The designs include a 40m-high minaret, a gym, a crÃ¨che and a cafÃ© within the 5,745 square metre development.
A crÃ¨che in the UK is a day-care center.
