Bangrak is getting a mosque as residents are concerned

Recommended Posts

It has been highlighted that a Mosque is under construction in the sub-district of Bophut which to my information has worried some residents and resorts that they will be shouting allahu akbar in the open area causing concern for residences overseeing Big Bhudda and hotels nearby that could negatively have an impact on tourists visiting and staying in the area of Bangrak. To my understanding some people have gone far and even petitioned to halt construction or at least providing some sort of restrictions that no allahu akbar shouting will occur - although so far no idea how far they have come. 

 

Does anyone have more information on this?

allahu akbar...God is Great...is a harmless Muslim phrase...it is when they shout jihad...that you need to be concerned...

I live in the area.

As long as they don't start blasting their "invitation to prayer" at 4am in the morning, we're good.

Otherwise, I'll just pay for a "tonight... tonight... samui international boxing statdium" truck to park outside of the mosque 24/7.

It's very likely you'll have the pre dawn wailings to wake you each morning.  I live near a mosque and hear it every morning and evening.

Thought there was a mosque already in Bangrak, there's one in HuaThannon also, nobody has ever cared. 

Quite right PoorSucker. There was one there for years. They are just building a newer, bigger one. Many years ago we regularly heard the call to prayers. I have not heard them for some time but now that the Mangrove has gone I am rarely there at prayer time.

Don't think so, let's see some photos. More recently I've seen houses described as Mosques, annoying if you've bought and then you find your neighbour blasting out prayers on loudspeakers.
