Ban on Azaan lifted at German mosque

83

Munster, Germany:  A court has allowed a local mosque to recite the call to prayer (Azaan) in German city Munster.

Earlier in 2018, the call to prayer was banned on the complaint of a Christian couple, saying it violated their religious freedom. The couple were living 900 meters from the mosque.

However, the court in Munster has overturned the 2018 decision.

The court observed that the call to prayer is not binding on all the people to obey.
