The Kerala Sunni Mahallu Federation, which has 8,000-odd mosque committees affiliated to it, has called for the restricted use of loudspeakers at mosques.

The federation, in its meeting held in Kozhikode the other day, stated that use of loudspeakers should not cause nuisance to the public. Its use should be limited for announcements and call to prayer. The faithful should keep away from actions that would affect the communal harmony. Issues should be handed in a well thought-out manner, said the federation general secretary and Muslim League supremo Panakkad Hyderali Shihab Thangal.

The federation directive was welcomed by various Muslim leaders.

Jamaat-e-Islami leader Muhammed Karakkunnu said the call  to prayer from various mosques in a locality at different times would cause hardship to people of that locality. On such occasions, at least a section of non-Muslims would detest the name of the Prophet when they hear the call to prayer amplified on loudspeaker, he said.

The suggestion of the mahallu federation is very relevant in the present social scenario in Kerala.

All India Islahi Movement general secretary Hussain Madavoor said the suggestion would bring relief to the public. It would strengthen the secular culture. Only a mosque in a locality have to give the call to prayer through loudspeaker, he said.

          Allah is a dumb, he or she whatever, cannot hear without loud noise. And Allah also blood-thirsty, he cannot stay a day without human-blood. Loudspeackers must be banned on mosque-tops.

            A very good decision, one that needs to be taken by churches and temples also. The singing, the preaching, the chanting, etc. should be heard by those in the place of worship not by people miles away. My ams to those who have made this wise decision!
