Can you imagine the uproar if crowds of Christians or Jews took over Times Square for the sole purpose of shoving their prayer rituals in your face, using powerful amplifiers?
Times Square, in midtown Manhattan, is one of the busiest tourist attractions, with dozens of Broadway show theaters and entertainment venues in the area, as well as a high traffic commercial and retail centers, drawing more than 50 million visitors a year.
Yet Muslims saw no problem with blocking the entire area at the height of the evening rush hour on March 27th, so they could perform Islamic prayer rituals for the Ramadan holiday, while sprawled out on prayer rugs lying all over the streets, followed by stuffing their faces full of food, as they broke the daily fast for their Ramadan holiday – effectively cutting off all vehicular and pedestrian traffic.
More than 1500 “halal” meals were provided to Muslims on the pavements of Times Square, which was then followed up by Muslims chanting the Taraweeh prayers.
(Notice there are no women in these photos. That’s because they are all relegated to praying behind the men because of their status as second class citizens in Islam)
