One thousand worshippers gather for mosque opening

Echo: Holding the floor - Imaan Shakyh Mahmudul Hasan Holding the floor - Imaan Shakyh Mahmudul Hasan

ONE THOUSAND people turned out for the grand opening of a mosque in Southend yesterday.

The Essex Jamme Masjid Mosque, in Chelmsford Avenue, was formally opened by Southend mayor Brian Kelly.

A host of other dignitaries were in attendance.

Southend MPs David Amess and James Duddridge were both guests, along with former MP Teddy Taylor, who gave a speech.

Imaan Shaykh Mahmudul Hasan addressed the worshippers, welcoming them to the mosque which partially opened in 2009.

Mosque secretary Rafique Ahmed said: “It went very well and it was a lovely opening ceremony.

“The Southend Shobuz Bangla Youth Club were fantastic as well. They provided food for 1,000 people, working so hard to get it all finished.”

Themosque, which was converted from a former United Reform Church, works with other mosques to promote tolerance and understanding.

The Essex Jamme Masjid Trust was formed in 1986.

Amess and Duddridge should be speaking out against the Islamifaction of southend, it will be like the east end in another 15 years.

Hopefully a miracle happens and they will lose their safe seats to UKIP at the next general.

My God, we are allowed to comment on this?

Let's face it, the publicity isn't good right now is it, where mosques and faith schools are concerned.

Timing isn't exactly brilliant.

How will the people in the surrounding area feel about the call to prayer? Have their views been considered?

Ironic isn't it, churches closing and mosques opening. Frightening. Our way of life is being destroyed daily and supplanted with others.

Cue the thumbs-down "you're a racist bigot" ranters.

Er no, actually, it's called having an opinion that may or may not agree with yours.

Quite frankly, most people will feel uncomfortable about this, considering the kind of publicity that surrounds the whole Islam/sharia subject. The whole issue of wearing burkas and some of the other medieval aspects of this "religion" is going to worry a lot of people.

I am against any kind of religious oppression and brainwashing but anything that is even remotely connected with extremism I find very worrying indeed.

Notice I write WITHOUT the racist language.. and in an articulate manner. I am allowed to question these things, as are we all. It's still a free country - except in the small minds of some people on here.

But go on, show yourselves up, usual attack dogs... start waving the race card and shouting the odds. I don't care. I've had my say.

Are others going to have the guts to express their fears too?

Don't think I'll bother to return to look at the inevitable deranged name calling and venom spitting.

I am going to enjoy my Easter holiday - and St George's Day next week.

And if that offends you, I couldn't care less.

Yes, utterly appalling.

This is our country. You come here , you respect our culture. There should be one set of rules and one law for all, not minorities demanding their own.

If I went to a Muslim country I wouldn't be able to demand that they fall in with my customs and religion, or change their rules to suit me. But we know who is behind this don't we? Probably not them. This is the work of interfering white indigenous leftwing busybodies poking their noses in and appointing themselves as moral guardians.

Respect is a mutual thing. It works two ways and if I went to live in another country I would have to accept their rules, laws and customs whether I liked it or not - and if I didn't like it, I simply wouldn't go there.

Islam has been around for centuries, and at the exact moment we bomb Islamic countries to steal their oil, suddenly people start thinking that they are all extremists. We read in the mainstream newspapers who only report about suicide bombers and the repression of women, but that is by an extremely small minority, and the sexist oppression is purely down to the insecurities of men, which is prevalent in most religions.

Oh here we go again. Please spare us the anti-Muslim whinging and the "This is a Christian country" cries. Just how many of the indigenous white supposedly-Christian population actually regularly attend church or pray? From memory, it's under 40% these days.

So you don't want mosques cos "we're a Christian country"? Do we then close synagogues too? Bulldoze all Jehovah Witness halls? Let's face it, they don't allow their children blood transfusions. Shut down Hindu & Buddhist retreats and temples too? And what about the pesky Catholics? Do we send them packing too? After all, you can't have a Catholic monarch here. And they did torture and burn a lot of good Protestants back in the day. And so on and so on.

I have no problem with a Moslem place of worship in my neighbourhood in the same way as I have no problem with any form of church, hall, synagogue or temple. Can't see why any rational person would.

Mein Kampf actually says "...I am fighting for the work of THE LORD."

The swastika was based on the religious cross of Christianity. Hitler got a lot of his ideas off of a Christian monk called George Lantz.

However, to think that all Christians are evil just because Hitler was would be a stupid as thinking all Muslims are evil because of a minority of suicide bombers.

Look up Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and read about the Nazis and Muslims.

Don't you dare rubbish the thoughts of many individuals by comparing the present day situation to that of the war.

I notice you breeze over the subject of the oppression of women - agree with FGM, burkas and stonings then do you?

Well it happens, whether you like it or not. I'm not for a minute saying they ALL do it but it's not something we EVER want to see introduced here. Hell, their extremist element hacked off a soldier's head in broad daylight in London or are you ignoring that too.

I am merely drawing attention to the fact that the extremist side CANNOT be ignored and is a genuine fear of many people, including some of their own number.

Time to get real. Do a bit more research before opining.

The only prophet I admire is the Prophet Muhammad.’ — Adolf Hitler (from “The Mysterious Achmed Huber: Friend to Hitler”)
Mein Kampf actually says "...I am fighting for the work of THE LORD." The swastika was based on the religious cross of Christianity. Hitler got a lot of his ideas off of a Christian monk called George Lantz. However, to think that all Christians are evil just because Hitler was would be a stupid as thinking all Muslims are evil because of a minority of suicide bombers.

It is more likely the symbol was stolen from the Hindu religion. They still have an identical symbol. Hitler just corrupted its meaning.

Ironic isn't it, churches closing and mosques opening. Frightening. Our way of life is being destroyed daily and supplanted with others.

Er no, actually, it's called having an opinion that may or may not agree with yours.

Quite frankly, most people will feel uncomfortable about this, considering the kind of publicity that surrounds the whole Islam/sharia subject. The whole issue of wearing burkas and some of the other medieval aspects of this "religion" is going to worry a lot of people.

I am against any kind of religious oppression and brainwashing but anything that is even remotely connected with extremism I find very worrying indeed.

Notice I write WITHOUT the racist language.. and in an articulate manner. I am allowed to question these things, as are we all. It's still a free country - except in the small minds of some people on here.

But go on, show yourselves up, usual attack dogs... start waving the race card and shouting the odds. I don't care. I've had my say.

Are others going to have the guts to express their fears too?

Don't think I'll bother to return to look at the inevitable deranged name calling and venom spitting.

I am going to enjoy my Easter holiday - and St George's Day next week.

And if that offends you, I couldn't care less.
II have no idea if you personally turn out regularly to support your Church or not, but the reason Churches are closing is because, on the whole, we DON'T support them. Consequently, we cannot complain when places of worship of another faith are opening and growing because they ARE being supported. It has nothing to do with race, so no, I won't be waving the race card at you for your comment, (sorry to disappoint), it's just logic.

Good God Kim, this is getting laughable now. " ...'They' were also connected with Hitler and the destruction of Jews"! How far back do you want to go?

Historically, WE have done a few horrendous things in our time too you know, and that's just the English. Lump all the Christians together and throw them in the mix and some of our not so nice accomplishments against our fellow man is off the scale!

You cannot isolate one event in history, taken out of context to justify why you don't like an entire group of your fellow man. The very fact that you are compelled to dislike an entire group of people without ever meeting them, says far more about you that the given situation itself.

Why are there concerns around this story? Well....

The vast majority of muslims are good and reasonable people. However, the extremist minority are very dangerous, as we have all seen. That extremist minority will always be there. It seems the muslim community are unable to stop them, and the authorities certainly can't fully contain those intent on public mass murders.

By opening a mosque it should attract more muslims to the area in the long term. Using simple laws of probability that means an increased possibility that there will some extremists among them, in the Southend area.

We should not be surprised or offended or disgusted by the natural fears of people who have seen events such as 9/11, Madrid, London 7/7, the Woolwich beheading of the soldier, etc. etc.

We should always recognise that the extremists are a tiny minority, but don't castigate people for having genuine worries about what that minority are capable of!

I see a new mosque as an idicator.

It indicates that the muslim population of Southend has geared up another level. It tells me that there will be more of them and that genuinely troubles me.

Because once they are in sufficient numbers they choose not to integrate into their surroundings. In fact they will exclude the indigenous population and favour their fellow muslims (see Ilford, Leicester, Birmingham etc etc.)

And that saddens me, because I see it as an indicator that another piece of England will be English no longer.

And Southend happens to be my little piece of England; so please forgive me if I don't celebrate the new mosque.

Violence is inherent in Islam --its a destructive nihilistic cult of death, it legitimizes murder." If you google "malala" also an inspiration for all women. http://wp.me/p2GpDB- cF haveittodayray

Rubbish - they didn't earn my way of life thankyou. Yes they may well have fought alongside us in the War but did you know they were also connected with Hitler and the destructions of Jews.

Look up Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and read about the Nazis and Muslims.

Don't you dare rubbish the thoughts of many individuals by comparing the present day situation to that of the war.

I notice you breeze over the subject of the oppression of women - agree with FGM, burkas and stonings then do you?

Well it happens, whether you like it or not. I'm not for a minute saying they ALL do it but it's not something we EVER want to see introduced here. Hell, their extremist element hacked off a soldier's head in broad daylight in London or are you ignoring that too.

I am merely drawing attention to the fact that the extremist side CANNOT be ignored and is a genuine fear of many people, including some of their own number.

Time to get real. Do a bit more research before opining.
Good God Kim, this is getting laughable now. " ...'They' were also connected with Hitler and the destruction of Jews"! How far back do you want to go?

Historically, WE have done a few horrendous things in our time too you know, and that's just the English. Lump all the Christians together and throw them in the mix and some of our not so nice accomplishments against our fellow man is off the scale!

You cannot isolate one event in history, taken out of context to justify why you don't like an entire group of your fellow man. The very fact that you are compelled to dislike an entire group of people without ever meeting them, says far more about you that the given situation itself.

Yes, utterly appalling.

This is our country. You come here , you respect our culture. There should be one set of rules and one law for all, not minorities demanding their own.

If I went to a Muslim country I wouldn't be able to demand that they fall in with my customs and religion, or change their rules to suit me. But we know who is behind this don't we? Probably not them. This is the work of interfering white indigenous leftwing busybodies poking their noses in and appointing themselves as moral guardians.

Respect is a mutual thing. It works two ways and if I went to live in another country I would have to accept their rules, laws and customs whether I liked it or not - and if I didn't like it, I simply wouldn't go there.

Really? You honestly believe the oppression of women among women to be an extremely small minority? I think the evidence is against you there. The only minority is the number of moslem women brave enough to be able to speak up about the way they are treated. In Britain that is. They dare not do so as much in predominantly moslem countries.

Ah, but the point here is that neither, I expect, have the authors of the comments had a problem with those other groups you mention. In fact, they've probably barely noticed them or felt them any different in the way they act or behave. The problems are the fundamental differences, the lower integration with general societies, and the concern of swamping that has occurred in large parts of other cities. So you cannot expect people to celebrate the opening of a mosque.
Personally, I am not keen on any religion so I will not be joyous about any of them opening a new palace of delusion. But I see the moslem religion in general as being one of the most socially backward and most inclined to perpetuate unkind practices. Most other religions, though not perfect, have clawed themselves forward in this respect.
Ironic really, since I understand that a thousand years ago it was the early Muslim clerics that strove for acceptance of science and more modern way, and of peaceful coexistence of religions and races. It just seems to have lost this along the way.

Go live in rochdale or luton and tell me you want parts of essex to end up the same, you wouldnt make it from 1 end of those places to the other without some kind of incident. LinfordsLunchbox

Let's face it, the publicity isn't good right now is it, where mosques and faith schools are concerned.

Timing isn't exactly brilliant.

How will the people in the surrounding area feel about the call to prayer? Have their views been considered?

Ironic isn't it, churches closing and mosques opening. Frightening. Our way of life is being destroyed daily and supplanted with others.

Cue the thumbs-down "you're a racist bigot" ranters.

Er no, actually, it's called having an opinion that may or may not agree with yours.

Quite frankly, most people will feel uncomfortable about this, considering the kind of publicity that surrounds the whole Islam/sharia subject. The whole issue of wearing burkas and some of the other medieval aspects of this "religion" is going to worry a lot of people.

I am against any kind of religious oppression and brainwashing but anything that is even remotely connected with extremism I find very worrying indeed.

Notice I write WITHOUT the racist language.. and in an articulate manner. I am allowed to question these things, as are we all. It's still a free country - except in the small minds of some people on here.

But go on, show yourselves up, usual attack dogs... start waving the race card and shouting the odds. I don't care. I've had my say.

Are others going to have the guts to express their fears too?

Don't think I'll bother to return to look at the inevitable deranged name calling and venom spitting.

I am going to enjoy my Easter holiday - and St George's Day next week.

And if that offends you, I couldn't care less.
There you go Kim...83 thumbs up you must of hit a nail on its head, and you say you always get a thumbs down.

“The only religion I respect is Islam. The only prophet I admire is the Prophet Muhammad.’ — Adolf Hitler
(from “The Mysterious Achmed Huber: Friend to Hitler”)
Mein Kampf actually says "...I am fighting for the work of THE LORD."

The swastika was based on the religious cross of Christianity. Hitler got a lot of his ideas off of a Christian monk called George Lantz.

However, to think that all Christians are evil just because Hitler was would be a stupid as thinking all Muslims are evil because of a minority of suicide bombers.
You have too limited knowledge of world events to be so militant in your opinions, they are based on incorrect information & half-truths. The swastika was a hindu symbol adopted by the nazis. The fact he got some ideas from a christian is irrelevant, christianity wasnt a factor in the nazi's persecution of jews, hitler blamed the jews for other things. People are not saying all muslims are evil because of suicide bombers, they are expressing views based on the way muslims interact with non-muslims in parts of this country and others. They do not integrate or try to be part of our community, they build up their own at our expense while pushing us out and rejecting all our values until the area becomes a no-go area for non-muslims, and anybody who speaks out is given some brainless faux-history about the swastika being derived from a crucifix?

This story reminded me of a Episode of Rev (BBC2), the local Muslim Community Mosque got together with The Local Christian Community Church to raise funds for a childrens playground...the Muslims raising 1000's and the church raised about £12 i think it was, most funny.

I don't know whether to laugh or cry at all the useful idiots who are in favour of this abomination in our midst. Have we really learned nothing from the continuous Islamic atrocities? In this Holy Week, where we also saw the first anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing, I find the spectacle of our elected representatives endorsing these savages truly sickening.

I am against any kind of religious oppression and brainwashing but anything that is even remotely connected with extremism I find very worrying indeed.

Notice I write WITHOUT the racist language.. and in an articulate manner. I am allowed to question these things, as are we all. It's still a free country - except in the small minds of some people on here.

But go on, show yourselves up, usual attack dogs... start waving the race card and shouting the odds. I don't care. I've had my say.

Are others going to have the guts to express their fears too?

Don't think I'll bother to return to look at the inevitable deranged name calling and venom spitting.

I am going to enjoy my Easter holiday - and St George's Day next week.

And if that offends you, I couldn't care less.

I am concerned about this on many levels. I certainly believe that the majority of Muslims are as basically decent as the rest of the population and I wouldn't want to see a witch hunt against anyone. However, I am concerned about the Islamification of England and the wider issues of mass immigration. In many of our cities the white English are -or soon will- be in the minority. The spread of 'diversity' fueled by immigration and thrust down our throats is remarkable. Places that were recognisably English just a decade ago have been utterly transformed and the process continues.

I am scared that the same thing will happen in Essex. Nobody minds an area being 'cosmopolitan' but many of us don't want to it being transformed into a global mish-mash or an Islamic enclave. Most places in Essex are quite nice as they are without 'enrichment.' How insulting to suggest that white areas need to be made 'diverse' because they are deemed to be less worthy because of their homogenous nature.

Many of the immigrants that historically came to England (apart from the Jews) were of European and Christian heritage and were easily integrated into the English mainstream, having similar tastes and customs. For me, Islam is totally alien and it brings a whole new set of values, customs, laws, practices, styles of dress, loyalties and identities. This would be acceptable in small doses, but the fact is that Islam tends to spread rapidly. There is no doubt that within fifty years large parts of Southend could easily resemble Tower Hamlets or Oldham.

Finally, I think that it's sad that we English have largely abandoned Christianity and tend to be casual about our own identity and traditions. We are so wishy-washy at times and we only have ourselves to blame if we let our country be taken from us.

Nurse...he is out of bed again.
You have daily contact with a nurse do you? Why is that?

Or is this your punt at being sarcastic..if it is its truly purile
Never explain a joke.
Oh so you were joking? Oh dear oh lor..simple jokes for simple people..
Looks like i have touched a nerve.
You post a puerile comment get told it is just that and you respond by claiming it was a joke, and then that your 'joke' touched a nerve because it was pointed out to be puerile..oh dear how simple minded is that..pretending the puerile 'joke' was in fact a serious point...simple puerile to the nth.

It's a proverbial expression, consequently many have said it over the years. Possibly originated (in that precise form) by Charles Caleb in a published item in 1820. There were variations in published works by others prior to that time.
The expression was used in a beer adverts a few decades ago, as I recall.

Ironic isn't it, churches closing and mosques opening. Frightening. Our way of life is being destroyed daily and supplanted with others.

Cue the thumbs-down "you're a racist bigot" ranters.

Er no, actually, it's called having an opinion that may or may not agree with yours.

Quite frankly, most people will feel uncomfortable about this, considering the kind of publicity that surrounds the whole Islam/sharia subject. The whole issue of wearing burkas and some of the other medieval aspects of this "religion" is going to worry a lot of people.

I am against any kind of religious oppression and brainwashing but anything that is even remotely connected with extremism I find very worrying indeed.

Notice I write WITHOUT the racist language.. and in an articulate manner. I am allowed to question these things, as are we all. It's still a free country - except in the small minds of some people on here.

But go on, show yourselves up, usual attack dogs... start waving the race card and shouting the odds. I don't care. I've had my say.

Are others going to have the guts to express their fears too?

Don't think I'll bother to return to look at the inevitable deranged name calling and venom spitting.

I am going to enjoy my Easter holiday - and St George's Day next week.

And if that offends you, I couldn't care less.
At least not like the church's and touching kids
I think you will find they are. Look at the dirty filthy gangs of them grooming white girls for sexual exploitation Theres bad in all groups
In all groups but you think it's ok to say what you want when white people are just as bad if your worried about terrorists what about the IRA sort your life out this isn't Your country it's for who ever wants to come and if u wanted to move country you would be aloud with the right visas shame you don't id rather have 1 million Muslims around me than you

"Your contention is ludicrous..Anyone one being free to post here doesn't make it "a very representative forum"
....
Of course that DOES make it representative of anyone who cares enough to make a post, which is the most that any site can do. There are no entry requirements......th

ey you in...QED.

You come with your own agenda, which is OK everybody does that, but you do make the most stupid assumptions. The first is that you are in the majority whenever you speak. The second is that ,when this "majority" is mysteriously silent in its support for you, that is because the forum is right wing.

The third and saddest item is ....somewhere in your head you actually know this site is run fairly. What other reason could you possibly have for using multiple IDs in support of your own argument. ?

I am now seeing why my nurse comment touched a nerve.
Now you try moving the goal posts..

So from the forum being "very representative" implying of society, it is now only representative of those who care to post...so isn't "very representative" at all, is it?

Or are you stating it is very representative of those who post on it..which would be moronically obvious..

As usual, you get yourself in a muddle defending your stupidity..

Isnt it you who has made the stupid assumption ie that the forum is representative of society at large.

I speak only for myself..but isn't your claim that the forum is representative of society actually you speaking for the majority?

This forum is indeed inhabited by right-wing types..ie Daily Fail fodder...if that's uncomfortable for you and your ilk then review your ideology...for you are indeed in the minority...proof of that is we do not live in a fascist state, although we are edging that way.

"know this site is run fairly" What are you blubbering on about? Who has stated the forum is run fairly or unfairly? Is this even taken into consideration by those who run the forum?

Its the posters who make the forum a right-wing one not those running it...again you display your stupidity.

And now under pressure because of your puerile comment 'nurse oh nurse' you refer to the "multiple accounts" cop out..you really are a weak little scroat.

Your nurse comment, be it a "joke" or sarcasm, really is puerile and stands up clearly as that...its along the lines of 'nar nar nar nar nar'

Has it ever occurred to you that there are less far-left opinions on here because the majority of people in this country don't support your views?

Left wing views are proportionately represented here. Unless you're saying that those with far-left views don't bother to comment on these forums, and they are a silent majority? I'd find that very hard to believe...

And then report them to the admin as being mine and see if they remove them...you will find they wont because any you report will have nothing to do with me..BUT you always accuse me of this when I have challenged a stupid post by you and mocked you for it.."oh nurse, oh nurse" how juvenile is that? You comment is and was puerile..and your defence of it is more so.. Now lets see these alleged multiple account names. ThisYear

"Its the posters who make the forum a right-wing one not those running it"

Has it ever occurred to you that there are less far-left opinions on here because the majority of people in this country don't support your views?

Left wing views are proportionately represented here. Unless you're saying that those with far-left views don't bother to comment on these forums, and they are a silent majority? I'd find that very hard to believe...
Im saying this is a tory splattered forum and thus the 'little england' attitude is displayed like a stained pendant...

I know it's a bitter pill to swallow, but in reality most people in this country do not share your far left views. That's why you find it difficult to accept when this is exposed on free forums like this. Bless....

And you think everyone who opposes you votes Tory....Bless...

Prove it!......how disingenuous when you know nothing can be proved even by the echo if i asked them and they did bother to check their records..

The regulars know what you are doing and others will draw their own conclusion in their own time. You do have a very distinctive writing style mr multiple mincier.

Definitely hit a nerve with that nurse post. Something you are not telling us?

One day human beings will look back on this age and say how backward we were as a species to believe in man made Gods and to go to temples, mosques and churches and pray to these so called "super beings" who abandoned their followers after leaving a book of man invented written text. And we are quite happy to overlook how these "Gods and prophets" seem not to stop the continual slaughter of non believers or those of other faiths throughout history. Stop these backward religions from taking a further foothold in modern civilisation they already cause nothing but trouble and their claims of "religions of peace" don't make me laugh.
