Norway: Looking at banning the Islamic call to pray from loudspeakers.

(Oslo) The original Islamic call to prayer is actually wonderful to hear, however that has been spoilt by the ubiquitous use of loudspeakers in which to blare out to all and sundry that call 5 times a day.  This has you can gather has started to grate on the locals with even Islamic countries clamping down on the use of loudspeakers. (However when Israel does so, it is deemed a human rights crime)

Well it appears that Norway is going to follow suit with the Progress Party, part of Oslo's ruling two-party coalition is looking at banning the Islamic call to prayer via loudspeakers. Jon Helgheim, immigration spokesman for the Progress Party, has stated that the country's residents needed 'peace and quiet'. He rejected arguments that banning the religious announcement being played over loudspeakers would violate the European Convention on Human Rights.
'I don't give a toss what human rights provisions say in this case,'
