Creeping Islam: Asda To Stock Halal Cosmetic Range In Stores

Asda aiding the islamic takeover of the uk

The islamization of the UK continues as major supermarket chain Asda begin stocking halal cosmetics in their stores. With superstores in every major town and city, islamists must be rubbing their hands with glee now Asda are boosting their stealth jihad cause.

Will Asda stock these in their own separate aisle clearly labelled for Muslims only??  Or will they be stocked alongside other beauty products.

If the latter then you cannot help but wonder how many unsuspecting non Muslim shoppers will accidentally put one of these in their basket without realising the impact of their actions. That these halal branded products will have been made by a Muslim only company, any animal by-products in them would have been sourced from animals that have been inhumanely slaughtered and sacrificed to a pagan moon god for which a fee will have been paid to a Muslim organisation and could possibly end up funding terrorism.

For years Muslims have been engaging in stealth jihad, attempting to bring Islam in via the back door. Now Asda are ultimately aiding islamization by opening the front door and welcoming in the creeping sharia cancer into our daily lives

 

Halal cosmetics created by businesswoman Salma Chaudhry will be stocked at Asda from May.

Asda will become the UK's first major retailer to launch halal cosmetics

The full range of skincare and cleansing products will be exclusive to Asda and will launch within 54 Asda stores.

They will also be available to purchase via the Asda online home shopping website.

A limited edition Eid Gift range, which includes cosmetics for both men and women, will launch in June which will be when Ramadan falls this year.

Details of store locations will be available on the company’s website Halalcosco.com.
Salma from Blackburn who was named Entrepreneur of the Year at the Fusion Awards in 2013 said, “Halal beauty is currently one of the fastest growing sectors within the beauty industry.

“This demand is driven by Muslim millennials who want a modern lifestyle without compromising their beliefs.

“Since our business launched in 2014, we have noticed an increased demand for halal cosmetics year on year as Muslims become increasingly aware of the distinct differences between halal cosmetics and other brands both in the UK and overseas.

“In fact, our company has been the opposite of the majority of start ups, due to a large proportion of our products up until now exported to the Middle East and also to South East Asia, as the rise of halal cosmetics continues to see significant growth in these regions.

“This was a great challenge for us as a new brand as exporting requires a great deal of knowledge and understanding about trading regulations of the country in which you wish to export.

“This is unusual as most other companies focus on their home markets initially before expanding to commence exporting.

“I think there are several key factors why our products are popular in the Middle East ranging from offering that total peace of mind, because our products are certified halal, through to the fact that they are manufactured here in the UK and the “Made in Great Britain” tag is extremely desirable in places like the UAE, Saudi and Malaysia.

“In the UK, up until now we have been working with a handful of independent retailers.
“However, we constantly receive enquiries from across the UK, and it’s very disappointing for us when we are not always able to direct consumers to a local stockist.

“We are delighted that Asda will now be stocking our products across some of its stores as this will make halal cosmetics more easily accessible to an increased number of consumers, filling a huge gap within the beauty sector which has always been our main goal.

“It also shows that major UK retailers are recognising that the demand for products suitable for Muslim consumers goes beyond food and drink.

“It’s an exciting time for us as we plan to launch a full range of colour cosmetics later this year in addition to a men’s skincare range.”

Good News For Once: Altrincham and Hale Residents Block Proposed New Mosque

Very good news coming out of Greater Manchester for a change. It seems that  plans for a new mosque come stealth jihad control centre for the leafy suburbs of Altrincham and Hale have been shelved for now. The controversial construction project would have seen a new mosque built on green belt land. 

The proposal caused fury amongst the local residents who vigorously opposed the Islamization  of their area and took to the streets in vast numbers to protest against the mosque. Well done to all those involved.

Its a shame more ‘normal’ people in other areas facing mosque construction are not equally as passionate about blocking them being built in their own neighbourhoods. Instead of   doing nothing as Islamization is taking hold on their doorsteps.

stop islamization by stealth jihad no more mosque building

A Trafford Muslim group behind plans for a huge new Islamic community centre say they been put on hold following the announcement of Greater Manchester’s green belt masterplan rather than protests by residents.

The Altrincham and Hale Muslim Association (AHMA) want to build a new, 2,000 sq m, two-storey centre on green belt land in Timperley.

Peaceful protest over plans for a huge new Islamic community centre
The controversial plans sparked a number of demonstrations, with hundreds of people taking to the streets – and more than 2,000 signing a petition opposing the new centre.

Bosses say they have outgrown their current base in nearby Hale and that there are no other suitable sites available.

The new centre would sit on disused land on Thorley Lane.

The association’s plans have now been withdrawn, with all traces removed from Trafford council’s website.

The group say the project has been put on hold because of the region’s 20-year housing plan, which includes proposals for sites on and around Thorley Lane.

The Greater Manchester Spatial Framework (GMSF) suggests building homes on the land, as well as community and commercial space, redrawing the green belt in the process.

AHMA bosses say they’ve put their plans on ice for the time being, pending ‘clarification’ of GMSF plans.

A spokesman for AHMA said: “As residents will be aware, it is proposed to amend the green belt and a number of sites around Thorley Lane are allocated in the draft GMSF for residential, commercial and community development, including the site of the proposed new AHMA community centre.

“With this in mind, the AHMA has decided to place on hold the planning application for at this time, until the situation relating to the GMSF has been clarified.

“However, the AHMA is committed to delivering the new facilities, which are so desperately needed for the growing local Muslim community.

“We will monitor the situation with the GMSF closely. We would like to thank the community and stakeholders who see the shared vision of this project and will endeavour to keep the local community updated as and when we are ready to progress with our plan.”

 

Those opposed to the plans say there are plenty of other community centres in the area and have objected against development on green belt land.

There are also fears the new centre would cause traffic chaos.

Despite one protest attracting attention from far-right groups, including the English Defence League, campaign organisers insisted the demonstration had ‘nothing to do with religion, race or politics’.

Blackburn Islamization : Mosque Takes Over Management Of Local Sports and Community Centre 

Blackburn with Darwen’s Labour run council have further aided the Muslim takeover of their area by handing over control of a local sports and community centre to the Jamia Ghosia Association, the group that control the Chester Street Mosque of the same name.

The future of the sports and community centre looks bleak. Muslims are hardly known for being the best at sports…. Most likely the Audley Sports and Community Centre will most likely soon become known as Audley Islamic Community Centre as the groups primary objective as described on the charity commission website is the advancement of Islam

The groups self description on the charity commission website:

Charitable objects: THE ADVANCEMENT OF THE ISLAMIC FAITH AS PRACTISED BY THE SUNNI MUSLIM SECT IN BLACKBURN AND ITS ENVIRONS AND THE RELIEF OF POVERTY AND SUFFERING AMONG MEMBERS OF THE SECT IN THE SAID DISTRICT

 

A VOLUNTEER group based at a Blackburn mosque has taken over Audley Sports and Community Centre.The leisure hub will be run by the Jamia Ghosia Association, which is based at Chester Street Mosque.It was one of several groups that applied to Blackburn with Darwen Council to take on the centre and was chosen following a lengthy process.

The move follows the decision by the borough to transfer the management of several community centres because of government budget cuts and initially dismayed users when announced in June.The association has said it plans to continue the services currently on offer at the centre and will use the facilities to help ‘enrich the lives of the community’.Mir Zaman, chairman of the association’s management committee, said: “We would like to thank the council for giving us this opportunity.“We are committed to the long-term sustainable future of Audley Sports and Community Centre for the local and wider community.“Our vision is to engage with residents living in the surrounding areas to become part of a successful active community.”

Council leisure boss Cllr Damian Talbot, said: “Residents told us that the centre is somewhere that they really value so we’re delighted to be working with the Jamia Ghosia Association to secure the centre’s future.“Their application demonstrated that they have the enthusiasm and commitment to build on what the centre already offers and put the community at the heart of everything they do.“I would appeal now to residents to do everything they can to support the association and to help make the scheme a success.”

Anybody interested in volunteering should contact info@audleycentre.co.uk. Council staff given notice in July could be employed by the new management.The association, which will take over the centre in January, also manages the Jamia Ghosia Mosque in Chester Street.

Concerned Citizens ‘Stop The Mosque’ Protest In Bolton Opposed By Communist Appeasers

Concerned citizens in Bolton yesterday held a protest against yet another planned mega mosque for the town. The huge mosque construction was recently given the go ahead by Bolton’s Labour controlled council despite a significant lack of parking spaces and concerns of local non-Muslims about the monstrosity building.

Bolton council have a long history of Muslim appeasement and assisting in the Islamization of their own town at the expense of indigenous residents. Bolton council is helps pay for Muslims stealth jihad by providing funding to umbrella group Bolton Council Of Mosques to the tune of over  £1 million of local authority money.

The 3 storey mega mosque is to be built in the Great Lever area of Bolton. The proposed mosque is set to come with a huge dome roof and massive 130 metre high minarets which will dominate the local skyline.Bolton at present already has 28 operating mosques many of which are large buildings and cause a great deal of disruption to the surrounding areas.

The ‘Stop The Mosque’ peaceful protest in the town centre passed off trouble-free. This despite the presence of anti democratic communists and Muslims  at a protest against the protest organised by Unite Against Fascism. The last time the extremist UAF went to Bolton to counter protest an EDL march the town witnessed disgusting scenes of  violence after UAF leader Weyman Bennett, a notorious race baiter incited a near riot which saw him and over 50 other communists arrested. Around the same number as total UAF counter protesters present this time who held ‘refugees welcome’ placards

 Communists and Muslims from Unite Against Fascism falsely smear anybody against islamization as Nazis and say 'refugees and migrants welcome'

The SWP front group despise free speech and do not believe in people being able to voice they opinion unless it is the same view as their own or by non white Brits. UAF communists fail to grasp that opposing Muslims  stealth jihad and aggressive islamization tactics does not make you a nazi like those of Hitler’s Germany. It is called having the sense to defend your future freedoms.

The Great Lever mosque proposal is the latest approved construction from a long list of  controversial applications to be granted planning permission from Bolton’s Muslim loving council. Last year the Labour Council went out on a limb to appease the local Muslims by passing planning permission for two other highly controversial mosque constructions. One in Farnworth and a mega mosque on Blackburn Road.

According to the Muslims behind the proposal the current mosque is to small for the 50-150 Muslims that go to worship there. Yet according to certain Islamic websites that have mosque directories. The current mosque already has a capacity to hold 950 people, which would mean plenty of space to accommodate an increase in numbers attending.

The picture below shows the current mosque which the Islamists behind the project claim is too small to hold 150 people.

As part of the proposal the building shown above  will stay ( shown on the right in the image below.) and the new building will not actually be a replacement but a huge add on. This gives some idea on how large the planned development is going to be.

Yet Another Planned Mega Mosque For Bolton

Yet another new mega mosque construction in the pipeline for Bolton. The way things are going Bolton will almost certainly be lost completely to Islamization within the next couple of years. Muslims are being heavily aided in their Islamic takeover of Bolton by the Muslim loving local council dominated by the Labour Party and heavily infiltrated by Muslims. Previously i revealed that Bolton Council gave over £1.1 million in funding to Islamic umbrella group Bolton Council Of Mosques.

Last year Bolton Council went out on a limb to appease the local Muslims by passing planning permission for two highly controversial mosque constructions. One in Farnworth and a mega mosque on Blackburn Road. An area that  has several mosques already. Despite countless objections and concerns council planners still gave the go ahead. Bolton at present has 28 operating mosques many of which are large buildings and cause a great deal of disruption.

This latest proposed Mosque(pictured below)  is an enormous building that will dominate the local skyline .

According to the Muslims behind the proposal the current mosque is to small for the 50-150 Muslims that go to worship there. Yet according to certain Islamic websites that have mosque directories. The mosque has a capacity to hold 950 people which would mean plenty of space to accommodate an increase in numbers. The picture below shows the current mosque. A large structure as you can see. 

BOLTON MOSQUE Grecian Cres Google Maps

 As part of the proposal this building will stay shown on the right in the image below. This gives some idea on how large the planned development is going to be.

This mega mosque is not about the number of worshippers outgrowing the building as the Muslim trust claim. The sheer size of the imposing building is about a Muslim takeover and show of power. 

PLANS have been put forward which could see a large new mosque built in Great Lever.

The owners of the Makkah Mosque and Community Centre in Grecian Crescent want to build a much bigger facility on vacant land at the site.

The mosque is currently housed in a Victorian former school building, which would remain in place under the plans and be used as an education centre.

If approved, the new three-storey mosque building would be built alongside a new two-tier community centre — with spaces for 90 cars to park on site.
It will be made up of a main building, along with two minarets reaching 130 metres above sea-level, which works out at 25 metres high – as well as a large dome.

The Makkah Mosque Trust said the application had been submitted because the current building has reached its capacity and the new facility will meet the “current and future religious and non-religious needs of the local Muslim and non-Muslim community”.

The trust states that one key aspect of the proposed new mosque is to provide “much needed” facilities for women and children.

This means a specific prayer hall for women, as well as a women-only washing room.

The plans also include a main prayer hall and a special occasion prayer hall, funeral room and meeting rooms.

The mosque building will be linked — through a lobby — to the new community centre building, which will house community rooms and a kitchen.

The proposed mosque’s main frontage, pedestrian and vehicle access would be facing Grecian Crescent, with the community building set back from the road.

The total footprint of the new scheme will cover 5.895 sq m, compared to the 2.680 sq m taken up by the existing mosque plot.

The current building is included in that measurement as it is proposed it will remain in use as an education centre for the trust.

In a planning statement, a spokesman said: “A desire to enhance and improve the dated mosque facilities and provide much needed prayer and other facilities for women and children as well as to cater for the wider local community irrespective of their race, creed, colour gender and religion is the driving force behind the proposed scheme.”
“This new replacement facility will endeavour to tackle some of the social exclusion and integration issues currently plaguing society and will be a model for other cities and all the facilities will be open to the local community irrespective of their creed, colour or religion.”

Although providing 90 car parking spaces, the trust said it will encourage members to travel on foot and believes this will be the case — with most heading in from the immediate vicinity.

A spokesman said: “It is the policy of the Makkah Trust to encourage members to travel on foot. As part of their religious beliefs, the congregation sees walking to their place of worship as an important part of the ritual.”

The application states that the mosque currently welcomes in an average of 50 people to observe prayers between Monday and Thursday — with that number rising to between 100 and 150 on Saturdays and Sundays.

Friday lunchtime is the main prayer time of the week and so a higher number of members would be expected to attend at that time.

The trust said it carried out “extensive” community consultation on the plans between October, 2014 and November, 2015, including delivering leaflets to residents and holding a public meeting.

The plans will now be analysed by council officers and are likely to come before the planning committee for a decision to be made.

Birmingham Council Approve 2nd Controversial New Mosque In A Week

Birmingham has had its second controversial new mosque approved by planners in less than a fortnight. The local council have given the go ahead to a monstrosity of a mega mosque which will cost 7.5 million to build. The planing committee approved the project even after objections including from members of the mosque who disapproved of plans liking the mosques eyesore design to building a power station in a housing area.

Birmingham is a city that has seen more than its fair share of aggressive Islamization over the past few decades and is hardly recognizable from the Birmingham of 30 years ago. The distinctive Brummy accent as spoken by daft Barry from iconic comedy Aufwiedersen Pet is heading to extinction. Go anywhere in the city and the local twang is more likely to be a Pakistani/English hybrid spoken, full of ‘innits’ and ‘jiggyjiggy’ this is the new brummy accent as the Brits move out and an ever increasing amount Muslims move in.

Yet Birmingham continues to be Islamized more each week at an alarming rate. The city already has 105 operating mosques with out the 2 newly approved mosques. With each new mosque comes more Muslims moving in to the area. With more Muslims living in one place then their is less need for them to integrate with rest of society which brings with it a whole load more of Islamic related problems. This is already evident in the area with trojan horse plots in schools, home grown terror cells and jihadi recruitment by local extremists. 

A £7.5 million mosque planned for the heart of Balsall Heath is too large, a member of its own congregation has claimed.

Abid Ismail, who attends the KSIMC Shia mosque in Clifton Road, said he likes the current ‘Little House on the Prairie’ type facility they have at present.

He was speaking as the council’s planning committee gave the go ahead to a giant three-storey Mosque on Clifton Road, Balsall Heath.

The congregation has outgrown the existing building on the site and wants to expand – it can attract up to 1,800 people for special festivals.

Pictures: New mosque will unite wider community, architect claims

Resident Abid Ismail said: “This mosque will be devastating for the area. We want to keep the Little House on the Prairie Mosque as it is.”

He said that the planned mosque was simply too large.

“It is like putting a nuclear power station in the middle of Balsall Heath,” he said, adding that its size would create a road safety hazard as well as congestion.

But John Jowitt, speaking on behalf of the mosque, said: “The community has grown. The members have been consulted on how to meet the current and future needs.”
He said the final plan had been developed over many years through discussions with the community and with planning officials and the majority of the congregation were on board.

Planning committee members were impressed with the development, especially as, unlike for many other mosques, a large 350-space car park is being provided.

Coun Mohammed Azim (Lab Sparkbrook) said: “This is a very good development.”
And Coun Peter Douglas Osborn (Con Weoley) added: “There’s been a mosque here for 40 years and it has come to a point where there is greater demand for its services.”

He said that the committee had always wanted to see larger mosques in commercial and industrial areas with adequate parking spaces and which would not impact on residents.

“This is precisely what we have here,” he added.

Under the plans, the existing single-storey worship hall, known as the Imambara, will be demolished and replaced with a grand three-storey building.

The linked mosque will be remodelled and extended and topped with a hollow gold dome and minaret.

The wider development also includes the demolition of the former Mr Clutch garage and construction of a new community sports hall in its place with facilities for volleyball, badminton, five-a-side football, gym and a café.

KSIMC is also planning to construct a three-storey building fronting Moseley Road, with a ground floor shop and flats above, and a funeral home fronting Clifton Road.

The three-storey school and nursery, which was built in 1838, will be kept although some internal modifications are proposed.

Video: Britain First Activists Attacked By Islamists Who Say Their Taking Over In Luton Enclave

Bury Park - Luton - home to radical Islam
Bury Park – Luton – home to radical Islam

The video below shows activists from political party Britains First being attacked by Islamists in Lutons Muslim Enclave,  Bury Park.

A small group of Britain First members were carrying crosses to represent Christianity and handing out newspapers on a busy main road in an area that has been invaded by Muslims and is said to be a virtual no go area for non Muslims. They were immediately swarmed on sight by raging local Muslims. One Muslim shop keeper comes out of his greengrocers and boldly boasts that Muslims are taking over. The sight of Christians with  the cross incensed the religion of peace members who showed their true violent nature  as usual. Throwing things, verbally abusing them,making threats and wanting to fight with the BF group even with the police present.

Luton is a well known hotspot for Islamic extremism and where the EDL was founded in response to the radical Islamism shown by many of Lutons Muslim residents.

The decline of the manufacturing industry in Luton, the subsequent reduction in jobs on top of conflicts between western values and the laws of Islam have all created an environment which saw radical speakers like Abu Hamza al-Mazri and Omar Bakri Mohammed invited to speak and welcomed with open arms at the mosque on Leagrave Road.

Both hate preachers have since been deported from the UK. But their legacy lives on. Luton is a breeding ground for Islamic terrorists and their supporters. Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly, the Stockholm bomber was a Muslim extremist from the Bedfordshire town. The 7/7 bombers also had links to Luton.

In April 2013 four jihadis n from Luton (Zahid Iqbal, Mohammed Sharfaz Ahmed, Umar Arshad, and Syed Farhan Hussain ) were given lengthy jail sentences for engaging in conduct and preparation for acts of terrorism. The men had planned to carry out terrorist attacks in Luton and elsewhere with improvised explosive devices to be made using instructions from an Al Qaida magazine.

In December 2015 four Muslims from Luton were arrested by counter terrorism police for plotting a major terrorist attack in the UK.

Birmingham Council Approve Plans For New Mosque : Ignore Parking And Traffic Concerns

Birmingham City Council have become the latest local authority to appease Muslims by granting planning permission for a controversial new mosque against the wishes of many of the local residents.

Just like the approved planning for the new mosque in Derby which i recently posted about. Objections against the planning by those living in the area once again fell on deaf ears.

As with almost every new mosque construction lack of car parking and congestion of the surrounding roads are one of the major concerns raised. Yet the Muslims involved in the planning bit usually come out with the claims that those Muslims who will attend the mosque will walk there, Experience tells us that in reality that soon goes out of the window once the mosques open. Come Friday afternoon prayer times you can be certain that the car park will be brimming and every single inch of space where you can get a car in surrounding the mosque, regardless of if its blocking somebodies driveway, double yellow lines or on the pavement will be filled with countless badly parked cars and taxis. Come end of prayers the surrounding roads will be reminicent of Islamabad high street at rush hour. Gridlocked with impatient Muslims honking their horn non stop.

Empty garage on New Coventry Road, Sheldon to become new mosque despite residents concerns over parking

Empty garage on New Coventry Road, Sheldon

Plans to turn a disused car workshop into a mosque have been approved despite warnings of traffic queues and chaos.

Residents and local councillors raised objections over the plans to open the prayer centre in the former garage at 155 New Coventry Road in Sheldon .

The Manarat Foundation wants to relocate claiming it has outgrown its current venue further along Coventry Road.

The derelict garage car park can accommodate a maximum of 41 cars, but it is estimated that up to 200 people could attend Friday prayers leaving dozens of cars queuing along the busy road to get in.

Coun Tony Ludlow (Lib Dem, Lyndon), speaking on behalf of residents, said they fear the roads behind would become blocked with parked cars. “The provision of parking must be improved,” he said and warned that a residents’ parking permit scheme would be considered if the roads behind were regularly blocked.

Planning committee members warned that, with an Aldi store opposite, a Tesco and local centre nearby the mosque could gridlock the already busy Coventry Road as cars queue to go in.

Coun Carol Jones (Lib Dem, Stechford and Yardley North) said: “There’s a lot of busy junctions near here. If there’s a problem getting in there’s going to be a long tailback.”

The committee was advised that the 41 spaces were an improvement on the existing mosque, which has no parking spaces at all.

Coun Gareth Moore (Cons, Erdington) said: “It is an improvement, but it is still not enough to accommodate hundreds of people showing up for Friday prayers.”

The committee insisted that there was a condition placed on the planning permission guaranteeing that the car parking is marshaled at peak times. The mosque was also urged to encourage worshippers to walk or take public transport to the venue.

The committee voted by five to four to approve the relocation.

Council Go Ahead For New Mosque In Derby Despite Many Objections

 

Another new mosque construction given the go ahead despite many objections from the local residents concerned about the extra traffic, lack of parking and the number of mosques in the area already. Even the local church facing the proposed mosque raised concerns, all of which fell on deaf ears.

Mosque constructions need to be opposed as they give Muslims a permanent foothold in their stealth jihad to Islamize the non Muslim world. Once they are built they are going nowhere, providing a base to plot their next expansion of Islam from. 

stop islamization by stealth jihad no more mosque building

An ex-pub in Normanton will be converted into a mosque after getting the go-ahead from Derby City Council, despite traffic fears.

Jamia Mosque, Rosehill Street, had applied to convert the former Greyhound Inn, Village Street, Normanton.

The parochial council at St Giles Church opposite the pub had raised concerns that the conversion could lead to traffic and parking problems.

It said it expected many people would drive to the mosque.

And there were 39 letters of objection in total with concerns including that there are already too many mosques in the area and that a new one would only serve one sector of the community.

But there were 77 letters of support from people.

Backers said that there was a need for a mosque and Islamic education centre in the area and it would “make the area feel more multicultural and inclusive”.

Chairman of the council’s planning committee, councillor Shiraz Khan, said its members unanimously voted for the conversion to get the go-ahead at its meeting on Thursday.

He said one person spoke out against the plans on the grounds they would cause traffic problems.

But he said: “We only had the one objector [speaking] and his concerns were about traffic levels, but the mosque is making a car park at the back of the building and they are having an exit onto Derby Lane as well so there were no concerns.

In some cases it is possible for pub owners to demolish or, in some cases, convert the buildings without having to apply to their local council for planning permission.

Mr Khan said: “You could have had Tesco or Londis moving onto the site and they wouldn’t even have had to have planning permission.

“At least this makes sure that the building stays and it is in use instead of being derelict.”

The Greyhound Inn closed in August after it was put up for sale by owners Enterprise Inns.

Councillor Mark Tittley, also on the planing committee, said the building was “no-longer viable” as a pub.

He said: “The parking needed to be adequate and they’ve proven it will be. I’m sure the officials of the mosque will make sure people will park in the car park and won’t add to the vehicles parking in the busy streets.”

The Jamia Mosque’s planning application says that the position of mosques in the city no longer caters for where Muslims live and it is important for one to be created in a different part of Normanton.

It says that having existing mosques in one area means people have to drive to them, increasing traffic and parking problems in that part of the city.

The application reads: “To alleviate this problem, premises like the Greyhound Inn were sought that are located to close to the community they serve.”

It adds that up to 60 people would attend at any one time, with the majority using it living within a mile of the site.

Bolton Council Aid Islamization: Another Muslim Construction Given Go Ahead

Bolton Council have further aided the Islamization of the town buy approving yet another Muslim development in the area. Bolton Muslim Welfare Trust the people behind the development say it will be an education centre. Although i dont know of any other schools whose hours are 3pm until 8pm. Also having looked at the plans i have my doubts with a room labelled hall taking up  half the area of the building with 2 small rooms labelled classrooms and one large room labelled community room which is the size of both classrooms combined.

To this sceptical inifidel, the floor plans would suggest that the education is only the secondary use for the building

Plans for Muslim education centre approved

 

PLANS to create a new Muslim school within a mill building in Daubhill have been approved.

Councillors agreed to give permission for the Islamic education facility to be built on the first-floor of the mill in High Street after a number of concerns previously raised by the planning committee were addressed.

The building is owned by the Bolton Muslim Welfare Trust, which runs the nearby Bolton Muslim Girls School.

The school will be used mainly between 3pm and 8pm, with wider use between 8am and 3pm during school holidays.

It will consist of a teaching room, a classroom, quiet study areas, stores, a hall area and a car park with six spaces.

The proposals for the teaching school came before the committee last month but councillors were worried about issues regarding the safety of children attending the building and the fact that other working practices take place in the ground floor of the building.

At yesterday’s committee meeting, members agreed that the concerns raised last month had been fully addressed.
Bromley Cross councillor Norman Critchley said: “My concerns were purely about safety and the applicant has answered all of my questions so I am happy to support this.”

His fellow Conservative councillor, Bob Allen, who represents Heaton and Lostock added: “I objected last time because of the potential risk to children due to the mixed use of the building.

“I have now been informed that there will be separate entrances for people and for vehicles, so while I am not 100 per cent happy with the mixed use, I am happy to support it.”

The dilapidated state of the first floor of the building means that the applicant is proposing to phase the refurbishment of the level by initially creating a classroom, quiet study areas a toilet block and a store area — with the second phase of refurbishment providing a teaching room before another classroom and hall are eventually added.
A spokesman for the applicant said: “This building is a heritage asset in Daubhill and it is crying out for investment and for it to be used by someone.
“I believe that this is a positive thing and the classes that are put on can help focus children away from anti-social activities.”
