A reader voices his/her concerns about the building of a Mosque and Madressa at the top of Earl Marshall Road.

Memories of a similar debate...

A reader writes of how the recent debate over Umar Mosque/Madressa on Barnsley Road reminded him of a similar debate and complaints by local residents (including Muslims) against a Mosque during the Ramadan in 1997-98.

"Those voicing concerns are not against having local mosque(s)"

A reader comments on our previous article ‘Debate over Mosque plans’ saying: “I and many other residents felt this article rather biased and not reflecting the full picture”.

"We were told that objections were pointless"
