“Practising Muslims will find a way to pray one way or another and they’ll find a place,” Ender Cetin, chairman at the Sehitlik Mosque in Berlin, told The Local.
If the mosque is too far away, they’ll find a corner to do it in, he says.
“You easily feel discriminated against by people if they don’t talk to you and then say, ‘you can’t practice your religion as you are used to’,” Cetin warns.“One doesn’t need to be a prayer room only for Muslims. A common prayer room is a good idea for everyone’s wellness.”

CHICAGO – Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump canceled one of his signature rallies Friday, saying he didn’t want to see “people get hurt” after protesters packed into the Chicago arena where it was to take place.
The announcement that the billionaire businessman would postpone the rally until another day led a large portion of the crowd inside the University of Illinois at Chicago Pavilion to break out into raucous cheers. Meanwhile, supporters of the candidate started chanting “We want Trump! We want Trump!”
There were isolated physical confrontations between some members of the crowd after the event was canceled.
