The mayor of the Danish city of Roskilde was woken up by music imitating the Islamic call to prayer. The local anti-Muslim activists who played it outside the mayor’s home said the act was to oppose the building of a mosque in the city.

Members from the ‘Stop the Islamization of Denmark’ (SIAD) group paid a visit to Joy Morgensen, mayor of Roskilde, after she promoted the construction of a new mosque in the city, which plans to have minarets used for calls to prayer, according to the Ekstra Bladet media outlet.

The anti-Muslim activists set up loudspeakers near Morgensen’s doorstep, playing what was meant to sound like the traditional Muslim call to prayer.

The adhan is called out from mosques five times a day, traditionally from a minaret, to summon Muslims for mandatory worship. The first call typically starts at 5.00 in the morning, the time the activists came to the mayor’s home.

“We thought that the mayor should taste her own medicine,” Anders Gravers Pedersen, the founder of SIAD, told RT

“She wants these minarets to spew the prayers, we think she doesn’t know what she’s doing. We came at five o’clock in the morning and played it for her,” he said. He added he is not interested in talking to the mayor and promised to stage similar acts for Danish government officials.

Roskilde already houses a mosque located in a converted garage building, and work to construct a new one at the same site is underway. According to Ekstra Bladet, the mosque will have five domes and two minarets.

Roskilde city council has already banned Muslim clerics from using the minarets for calls to prayer. Plans to build the mosque sparked debate among local communities, with Morgensen defending diversity and interfaith dialogue.

“You want to convince me or just find a solution? Please contact me properly. I was available in public and at city hall, but 5am, at my private residence is not my choice for being available for appointment,” Morgensen said in a comment to RT.
