Dudley mosque plan rejected by High Court

Plans to build a new mosque on a derelict site in the centre of Dudley have been thrown out by the High Court.

In September, Dudley Metropolitan Borough Council refused permission for a second time to build an £18m mosque and community centre on Hall Street.

Accusations of unfairness and “abuse of power” made by the Dudley Muslim Association against the council were rejected by the court.

Dudley Muslim Association said it would appeal against the ruling.

Kurshid Ahmed, from the association, said he was “bitterly disappointed” with the judgement and claimed the planning dispute had damaged community relations.

He also called for an independent hearing into the planning process, which dates back to 2005, when the association bought the plot of land.

‘Unfortunate dispute’

Following the High Court decision, the association is now required to sell the Hall Street site back to the local authority within the next month.

    Good stuff! What an excellent precedent, which could hopefully be used in other communities to thwart future attempts to build these horrible, intentionally ostentatious monuments to Mo shoved right into the faces of the Infidel community. Ground Zero NYC is a prime example.
    Consider also the inevitable cacophony five times a day from the minarets that we dare not complain about – certainly not in Eurasia.

  2. Islam is not an alien entity, ”Islam is a part of the history of Europe, it is a part of its current time and will be a part of its future. Islam does not support killing of innocent people, it is a big sin.

    Islam is a religion of Truth but do not expect muslims to sit down and appriciate western killing in every muslim country and again the fault lies in Muslims because they dont follow what Allah has told them. Look at Pakistan and Arab countries. Ruling class live like kings and general polulation suffer badly. Corruption is rampid, religious preachers favour corrupt and rich people.

    Prejudice against Muslims is at an all-time high and has become socially acceptable. Islamophobia was seen by many as normal, and said describing Muslims as either “moderate” or “extremist” fasters growing prejudice. Anti-Islamic sentiment is the last socially acceptable form of bigotry. In his book “the clash of civilisations,” Samuel Huntingdon wrote “The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion (to which few members of other civilisations were converted) but rather by its superiority in applying organised violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.
    We’re sowing, and we shall reap. Anti Islam propoganda in the Western media for the past 20 years, which accellerated after the 911, is having the opposite effect. Some educated people in the West mainly out of curiosity want to learn what Islam is about. When they approach their research with an open mind, probably most of them form positive impressions about Islam and some of whom rightfully convert. In the USA after the events of 911, convertions to Islam pheonominally increased maily in amongst the educated white community and a large majority of them were females.

    There’s a rising level of anti-Islamic hatred in this country. What do you expect from Muslim children born and educated in your schools by non-Muslim teachers? Non-Muslim teachers are not role models for Muslim children during their developmental periods. The result is that Muslim children have been leaving schools with identity crises. They do not know where they belong. Imams and Masajid are not responsible for the radiclisation of the Muslim youths. I blame the education system. Muslim children need state funded Muslim schools with bilingual Muslim teachers, otherwise, Muslim children will keep on suffering and create problem for the host communities.

  3. Ahmad — It wouldn’t be a problem if Islam was JUST a religion. It is far from just that.
    As you well know – Taqiyya has now been busted wide open, so save your breath.
    You so called “moderate” Muslims know what you have to do about your Saudi funded mosques, madrassas and hate preaching Imams. If you don’t get this under control, and you won’t, because of the fear structure of your cult, then prepare to be further vilified by those of us who enjoy a tolerant co-existence with every OTHER religion in our midst.
    For me, it has become Islamonausea. Just go away.

  4. Well, if it isn’t the troll called “Iftikhar Ahmad” again. I see there’s a little less of the demands for separate schools to teach muslims about their culture while they sponge off Europe and the West, but muslim dawa, none the less..

    Sonny , I don’t believe anything you have to say, I know better, I’m an islamorealist.

    For me. it is islamorealism. Just go away.

  5. There are now four state funded Sikh schools and one state funded Hindu school in Harrow and next year a Hindu state funded Muslim schools would be set up in Leicester. Even black community is thinking of setting up its own schools with its own teachers because British schooling is the home of institutional racism.

    Demand for Islamic education in England is growing fast and schools – official and unofficial – are springing up to meet it. Now some local authorities are concerned that there is insufficient regulation. Although the number of Islamic schools is still small – around 168 at the latest count, just 12 of them state-funded – it is growing fast. About 60 of these schools have opened in the last 10 years; several in the last couple of months. And the demand from parents seems to be huge – one school in Birmingham recently attracted 1,500 applications for just 60 places. At least five Islamic schools have recently applied to be free schools, although so far only one has been approved. Islam promotes seeking knowledge as a form of worship, and things like “memorising the Quran” are rewardable. That makes memorising anything else look eas. Muslims live up to a certain strict code which parents enforce on their children, thereby making them adhere to their schoolwork more than their non-religious counterparts. Islam puts a massive emphasis on education and its essentially part of the religion itself since its Sunnah (following in the manners of the Prophet (pbuh)) but also a lot of the pupils will be from ethnic minority families and stereotypes aside its no secret that they encourage their children to excel in their exams and whatnot

    As far As English language is concerned, nobody is denying its value and focus should be on helping people learning English. Migrant community believes that an English language skill is key to ensuring equal access to services, opportunities and personal independence. The economic and social survival of bilingual Muslim community depends on English language but not at the cost of its mother tongue. It is a crime against humanity to deprive a community from its native tongue and cultural heritage. Muslim community is bilingual and does not believe in becoming monolingual Brits.

    Bilingualism is an asset and not a problem. DFE is spending millions so that young generation could learn a foreign language, including Arabic and Urdu. The survival of British Muslim community depends on learning English, Arabic, Urdu and other community languages for their economic, social, emotional and spiritual prosperity. The council has stopped community papers not for reducing spending but to force Muslims to read only English papers. Tomorrow, the council will stop teaching foreign languages in schools. It will also force Mosques and Imams to read Quran and perform all prayers in English, instead of Arabic. The stupid British politicians have already asked migrant families to use English at home with their children.

    I’m not sure how learning English will help stop extremism either, many of those who have carried out/plotted atrocities have been highly educated. Speaking English does not promote integration into British society, and broaden opportunities. English speaking Muslims still face discrimination in jobs, education and housing. English speaking Muslim youths are angry, frustrated and extremist, thanks to English language. English language is not only a lingua franca but also lingua frankensteinia. Human right also covers linguistic right. Cultural and linguistic genocide are very common. British schooling is murdering community languages like Arabic, Urdu and others. English is today the world killer language. Linguistic genocide is a crime against humanity and British schooling is guilty of committing this crime.

  6. Iftikar is a troll, who uses resources of sites such as Vlad to further his Islamist agenda of state funded Muslim only schools using the native language of the immigrant population.

    My answer is to leave for your own Islamic country, where I’m sure you will get the choice.

    Muslims, one way or other, are a deadly parasite.

  7. The medium of instruction of a Muslim school is in English. Muslim children need to learn and be well versed in standard English to follow the National Curriculum and go for higher studies and research to serve humanity. At the same time they must learn and be well versed in Quranic Arabic to recite and understand the Holly Quran. They also need to learn Urdu and other community languages to keep in touch with their cultural heritage and enjoy the beauty of their literature and poetry.

    A Muslim is a citizen of this tiny global village and does not want to become notoriously monolingual Brit.
