While Gracelife Church has been raided and blockaded by the police and Alberta Health Services, it seems that there is one group that is still able to gather without the intervention of police, and that is the Islamic community.
In the last few days, a handful of videos have crept up online that feature large gathering of hundreds if not thousands of Muslims for their services and call to prayer. Two that we wish to highlight are the Masjid Al Rachid Mosque in Edmonton, and the other the Akram Jomma Islamic Center in Calgary, from videos taken in early April.
Despite the prohibition on Christian Churches, these mosques have gone unmolested by police despite so many congregants. The person filming even notes that the place is “packed packed packed” and that there are school busses there, which they use to bus in participants and those who can’t make it on their own.
While we’re sure that not every mosque is failing to adhere to Alberta’s lockdown restriction, we have heard about dozens of churches contacted by police, fined, have services interrupted, and dragged through the news cycles.
But mosques and the Islamic community? We haven’t heard a peep.
We wonder why that is.
