BILL TO QUI­ETEN MOSQUES

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

TEL AVIV: Is­raeli Pres­i­dent Reu­ven Rivlin spoke out on Tues­day against a con­tro­ver­sial bill that would pro­hibit mosques from us­ing loud­speak­ers to sum­mon be­liev­ers to prayers early in the morn­ing. The draft law, which sparked out­rage in the Mus­lim world, is set to be sub­mit­ted for its pre­lim­i­nary read­ing in par­lia­ment yes­ter­day. Its orig­i­nal form was amended last week in or­der not to af­fect the sirens that an­nounce the start of the Jewish day of rest at sun­down each Friday. – AFP
