One thought on “Hot Topics: Olympics Mega Mosque in Newham”

  1. Why the need for a mega mosque? Surely there are other ways one can build upon cultural relationships and enhance multi-culturalism without doing that. If this project truly was for the entire community why would a mosque be `specifically` built? Surely the money needed to fund and build this superfluous building would be better put into the local community and resources, etc. Allowing EVERYONE to ACTUALLY benefit not just one minority.
