UCLA's Muslim Call to Prayer

Hat tip Creeping Sharia

In the wake of the Duke University controversy over the Muslim call to prayer, Creeping Sharia has posted a video of a similar call to prayer at UCLA last Friday.

There is even more to this story. Over the past weekend the Western chapter of the Muslim Student Association (MSA) held their annual conference at UCLA. The following day of the above event, a similar public prayer was held at UCLA on the same location as part of this conference,  The person who filmed the Saturday (January 17) event was challenged by the MSA as to his right to film the prayer, which was taking place outdoors. You can see this confrontation in the video.

Just for the record, this was an outdoor display in public view on a public university campus. The right of the cameraman to videotape this is absolute.

Here is the Daily Bruin puff piece on the confab. I note that one of the participants was Imam Suhail Webb from the Islamic Cultural Society of Boston.

There will be more to this story to follow. Stay tuned.
