Craven Arms mosque extension plans

Craven Arms is a small town and in Shropshire, It has a Population of just 2,289.
Even a small Market town which is in a very rural setting is not safe from the Mosque invasion.

Plans have been drawn up to extend a small mosque in south Shropshire.


The terraced house in Craven Arms currently accommodates about 25 people in its main prayer room.

The town's Muslim community hopes to extend the building in order to build a library, computer room, creche and meeting room, which could all be used by the wider community.

Imam Sohayb Peerbhai said they wanted to show the mosque was open to everyone.

"We hope to have a meeting room for inter-faith dialogue groups, for the local police... and also for other community events that are nothing to do with Muslims, but we hope that they also can he held here so we can play our part in the Craven Arms community.

"It's very important that Muslims embrace the non-Muslim community in a way where people don't feel afraid of Muslims.

"We have decided not to have a minaret or a dome so it doesn't look like the mosque is trying to take over the skyline."

More details will follow.
