Cape Town Shuts Down Gay Mosque Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Wed, Sep 24, 2014, 12:29 AM

The City Council of Cape Town, South Africa has shut down a mosque that welcomes the LGBT and feminist communities to pray for a rainbow jihad.

The BBC News reports that, "South Africa's first gay-friendly mosque, which also allows women to lead prayers, has been closed indefinitely, a local official has told the BBC."

Gay imam, Taj Hargey, is quoted as saying that, "The City Council is trying to close the mosque using ridiculous bylaws and I will not be threatened by them or anyone else."

According to the BBC, "A City of Cape Town councillor says the newly established Open Mosque had violated municipal by-laws by not having any parking spaces. The mosque officially opened its doors on Friday despite criticism from members of the local Muslim community."

Hargey vows to issue a fatwa against the Cape Town City Council.
