Hamtramck Voters Uphold Law Letting Mosques Use Loudspeakers

According to the Detroit News, broadcasting the Muslim call to prayer over a loudspeaker five times a day is now "protected speech". Voters upheld the amendment allowing the city's Islamic mosques to have amplified calls to prayer, 1,462 to 1,200.

Possible future requests for the Hamtramck City Counsel from the Mosque:

1. Implementation of Sharia within city limits.
2. Changing the name from Hamtramck to Islamtramck as the Ham reference is clearly offensive and derogatory to the City's Muslim residents.
