Skip to comments.Video: Mosque In U.S. Holds Daily Prayers Amid COVID-19 Lockdown While Christians Are Threatened and Fined Everyday
Posted on 04/19/2020 3:38:15 PM PDT by USA Conservative
On Easter, Kentucky State Police were circling the parking lot of a church thats packed for Easter service defying state orders and issuing warnings, if not citations.
Following Governorss license plate order, which applies anyone who attends an in-person church service or any mass gathering, police will refer those motorists to local health departments, which will then order 14-day quarantines although several attendees told The Courier Journal they have no intention of following the order.
While situations like this are happening all over the country on Christians, Muslims can hold their daily prayers in the epicenter of the COVID pandemic.
A Syracuse mosque is still open for daily prayers amid the Coronavirus shutdown as Christians are threatened and fined for attending drive-in services.
[Irfan Elahi] used his skills to create a prayer room covered in plastic with special ventilation that allows daily prayers to continue in the 116-year-old former church, as the holy month of Ramadan nears.
The room is lined with plastic, and two machines siphon air out of the room to create negative pressure. Air in the room is recycled every four minutes. Elahi used the materials and expertise from his day job to create what he called a clean room.
About 10 worshippers in masks are allowed in at a time, though rarely do that many show up. They stand far apart from each other as they follow a prayer leader standing on a plastic-covered prayer rug.

New York is the countrys Coronavirus epicenter with more than 18,000 deaths, however, this mosque is still open for prayers.
This mosque located on the north side was once the Holy Trinity Catholic Church, but it closed down due to lack of parishioners now it is considered a victory mosque.
Earlier on Saturday President Trump retweeted reporter Paul Sperrys tweet on Ramadan and social distancing in the Muslim community.
Paul Sperry tweeted: Lets see if authorities enforce the social-distancing orders for mosques during Ramadan (April 23-May 23) like they did churches during Easter.
President Trump re-tweeted this and the left had enough reasons to accuse President Trump of being Islamophobic.
One female reporter asked President Trump about his Sperry retweet at the daily coronavirus press conference. Partial transcript:
REPORTER: I want to ask you about one of your retweets from Paul Sperry:Lets see if authorities enforce the social distancing orders for mosques during Ramadan like they did churches during Easter
TRUMP:I would be interested to see that b/c they go after Christian churches but they dont tend to go after mosques. Our politicians seem to treat different faiths very differently. I dont know what happened with our country, but the Christian faith is treated much differently than it was, and I think its treated very unfairly.
You know I just spoke with leaders and people that love mosques, he continued. They love mosques! And Im all in favor of that. But I would say that there could be a difference. And well have to see what will happen. Because I have seen a great disparity in this country. Video below:
Everyone knows for some reason, mosques are not treated the same way as churches are unfairly treated by the authorities. They come down hard on churches in ways theyd never do to a mosque. Nobody says it out loud though
nobody but Trump.
Here’s the video without your blog
Must not be able to get the bug by sticking your face in the a$$ of the guy in front of you
Is anyone surprised?
They are all locked in a room that is covered in plastic. I’ll just let my thoughts dwell there for a moment.
Actually, this is a good thing. We now have a control group to see if the Covid Cowards are right about physical distancing.
Imagine if churches had a ‘womans section’!!
Just be threatening to authorities and they’ll kowtow to your demands. Has worked with blacks for decades.
Muslims want the freedom to oppress non-Muslims.
To be fair - it sounds like theyre handling 10 at a time.
Drive in services aside (which was perfectly within CDC guidance) - I wonder if the churches had multiple services of a max of 10 each if that wouldve been allowed.
Though I will point out that the Islamic prayers are time based and I dont think it counts if they all pray at separate times.
Of course not..we all know what happens when Muslims get upset, things go boom boom
“A Syracuse mosque is still open”
Are churches in Syracuse prohibited from opening? That’s what this article should have addressed, to be credible.
This should be encouraged. Maybe we can get a mullah to declare a fatwah against HCQ!
As usual, Isaiah nailed it, at least as far as I am concerned...
Come, my people, enter your chambers, And shut your doors behind you; Hide yourself, as it were, for a little moment, Until the indignation is past. (NKJV)
Ramadanadingdong starts 4/23 and runs until 5/23. How soon will the Demsheviks cave for gatherings over 10?
Yet more proof of how leftist totalitarians hate you and I and support those who would murder us.
The 1A pertains to the state establishing a religion. Islam is not a religion. It is a death cult. Muhammad was nothing more than a terrorist. Anyone who believes in their cultist ideas is infected with a mental disease.
Syracuse, New York is not at the epicenter. That is upstate.
The Demsheviks won’t do anything to upset the Aloha Snackbars. In fact, they make a concerted effort to kiss their collective @$$, lest they should provoke Sudden Jihad Syndrome.
What is the logic of building covered in plastic? This reminds me of a south park video.
