Call to prayer banned in Northern Cyprus

Northern Cyprus has banned reciting the Athan

 

A court in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus has banned reciting the Athan, the Muslim call to prayer.

The local court has banned the recitation of the dawn Athan through minaret speakers on the grounds that it disturbs locals in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus.
In the Lefke town of the Güzelyurt district, lawyer Feza Güzeloğlu requested a court to ban the recitation of the dawn Adhan, which is recited in the early hours of the day, through minaret speakers. As the trial still continues, the court issued an interim decision to issue the ban until the trial is concluded.
