Mus­lim prayers at zoo up­set some peo­ple

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

A Que­bec zoo is de­fend­ing it­self af­ter re­ceiv­ing crit­i­cism for al­low­ing a group of Muslims to pray on its premises. Parc Sa­fari says it has been the sub­ject of hate­ful and racist com­ments since a YouTube video was posted on Sun­day show­ing the prayers. A woman can be heard shout­ing, “we are too con­cil­ia­tory,” while an­other says she is against prayers in public spa­ces. Zoo man­age­ment says the Muslims re­spected all the guide­lines and would have been ex­pelled had they not.
