Muslim’s association ‘surprised’ at absence of land

The Muslim’s Association of Iceland has sent out a press release in which it expresses its surprise at not having been awarded land to build a mosque in Reykjavík, while the Reykjavík District Council has signed a declaration of intent to award the Russian Orthodox Church and the Pagan Society of Iceland land to build places of worship. This is reported in the main online media.

The Muslim’s Association first applied for land to build a mosque seven years ago, but has received no definitive answer from the city. While the Association would like to congratulate the other two denominations, it also wishes to reiterate the necessity of being awarded a place for a mosque and for religious denominations in the city not to be discriminated against, according to the press release.
