    God, we should be moving towards secularity and not this abomination.

    I find with often with fanatics that they often compete with each other to out zealot each other, it's especially common in Islam that people need to prove that they are the most religious of them all? I don't know, you don't need a ****ing call to praise your God, same way I don't need to be told when it's time to ****ing eat.

    I see that Alevelstress is still posting non-stop about Islam whilst pretending to not be a Muslim.
    Have you got proof that I'm not a Muslim? I am atheist and I detest all religion, but I am also a realist, and I know that religion isn't going to magically disappear overnight, even if I hate it to death.

    Definitely not signing. Muslims don't need a call to prayer to know when it's time and the petition is futile. People aren't allowed to play loud music on the streets and such so why would the Islamic call to prayer be exempt from that, more so in a non-Islamic country? :toofunny:

    No thank you. Turn your tv on and go onto a prayer channel and listen to it. I don't think a loud call is needed

    I completely sympathise with your petition. I believe that all religions should be treated equally- why should the Christian call to prayer be allowed (ie. bell ringing) when the Muslim version is not. I just wish the UK could become even more excepting of diversity.
    What? Firstly, bell ringing is barely heard and secondly, it's not a call to prayer. Christians, unlike Muslims, don't need to pray at specific times or in particular places.

    Kinda pointless, it'll just frustrate non-Muslims and isn't fair on them.

    Plus we can download apps that give a reminder for each prayer, so it's not even necessary for Muslims.

    I'm not sure how I feel about this. As much as I appreciate people's freedom of religion, church bells ringing are annoying enough as it is. Maybe i'm the wrong person to talk about this. I hate noise. I don't know. If Christians are allowed churchbells (basically their call to prayer) shouldn't Muslims be given the same rights? I mean isn't it discrimination otherwise. Like our right to express ourselves and whatever religion we do or do not believe is part of our freedom. What does everyone else think?
    I think the bells could be argued as somewhat okay because the UK used to be a Christian country, so the historic links are there. But we have never been or never will be an Islamic country

    Oh don't worry, there's no way this is going to be passed. Even if it gets enough signatures for a parliamentary debate it'll get thrown out after 2 minutes of discussion.

    The UK does not need diversity. There is no need for all religions to be treated equally, even. This is the UK, not Pakistan. There is a point of sensibility. Love and acceptance doesn't mean allowing some other group to bring its backwards and annoying traditions with it - there is a middle ground, and both sides make concessions.

    Stop selling the idea that anything less than lying over backwards for Islam means Islamophobia. Because if it does, then sign me up, and the term loses all value. The UK has the right to protect its own culture, exactly as governments in the Islamic block do.

    Anyway, religion is on its way out. Last thing a progressive country needs is another bloody religion.

    Also, it's obvious that the petition was set up by someone other than an Islamic, with intent to alarm. If it happened, there would be mass violence.

    I don't agree, we have no obligation to give all religions and cultures equal dominance, otherwise our own native and historical culture and traditions would disappear. The UK is a Christian country and church bells are barely ever heard. The adhan would be several times a day, loud and annoying, there's no way it's happening.

    Doesn't matte if you think its beautiful or not, you wouldn't like your neighbours playing their music loud enough for the whole neighbourhood to hear 5 times a day so Muslims should be equally as respectful. if you want to hear it loudly then play it on your phones and plug your headphones in.

    We live in a diverse, multicultural society. Allowing minorities to express their religion should be encouraged and welcomed. So long as it isn't anti-social, why shouldn't people be allowed to express their religious beliefs in this way?

    Because non-Muslims would never be afforded the same courtesy if they were the minority.

    Neither are 1.6 billion Muslims

    but apparently their ideological connection makes them personally responsible for the actions of hateful people who have no care for the rest of Muslims.
    OH NO

    alevelstresss and his 1.6 billion Muslims are back.

    Everybody run from his superior argumentation skills.
