Interior Minister Deri: No need for ‘muezzin bill’

Interior Minister Arye Deri has weighed in on the controversy surrounding the proposed “muezzin bill” saying that there is no need for the measure and that current laws can be used to require mosques to reduce the volume of the call to prayer.

Residents of mixed neighborhoods or Jewish neighborhoods close to Muslim ones have stridently complained in recent years that mosques use extremely powerful loud-speakers when issuing the call to prayer which wakes people late at night and in the early hours of the morning.
