UK: Now there'll be a mosque in the Outer Hebrides Ukmap

https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2018/04/08/outer-hebrides-have-first-mosque-summer-despite-free-church/ Quoting:

The first mosque in the Outer Hebrides is set to open this summer despite the Presbyterian Free Church praying that it is never built.

A fundraising drive for the mosque, which has already been granted planning permission, has raised £56,000 within days of launch, outstripping its £50,000 target. But the mosque faces fierce opposition from the local arm of the Free Church of Scotland (Continuing) which has urged followers to pray that "no mosque will ever appear in Stornoway".

Plans to create a mosque have been led by Aihtsham Rashid, 39, a builder from Leeds, who said he had been contacted by the growing Syrian community on the Isle of Lewis asking for help. Six further families have recently arrived from Syria, growing the area's small Muslim community. The 2011 census indicated that at the time there were 61 Muslims and 20,452 Christians in the Western Isles.

Mr Rashid said: "Against all odds and opposition from the Free Church of Scotland they have now been granted permission to build. "I have been personally requested to go up and help them with the build and planning due to my experience in building mosques."

A derelict house is now in the process of being converted into a mosque for the community.

In a press release published at the end of last year the Rev David M Blunt, of the Presbytery of the Outer Hebrides, said the establishment of the mosque would mean that "Islam will be able to promote itself in our midst through public worship, despite its beliefs and practices being alien to the religious convictions of the vast majority of our community". He added: "Islam is also incompatible with, and indeed a threat to, our religious and civil liberties, as is very evident from the situation which prevails in those countries where it dominates. "The oppression of Christians and the reduced status of women under Islam are well-known, as is the willingness of some of its followers to spread its influence by violent means."

Wonder who is funding the mosque. hmmm. There's no way that money could come from the tiny Muslim population there.

This is clearly being done as a form of psychological warfare on the inhabitants of the islands and the UK in general. As if to say "Even the most remote and homogeneous parts of the UK are getting mosques now. You have nowhere to run to"

That being said, good for Rev. Blunt for telling it like it is in such stark terms. Perhaps he will be branded a far right extremist next.
