After the solving the problems of Halal food, Halal meat and Niqab, now Europe countries are facing the question of
Halal Houses. In one of the nieghbourhoods of Amsterdam the council has built 180 house for its Muslim population which have room for wudhu, direction toward Qibla, separate room for ladies with sliding doors so they can offer Salat away from Muslim men.
This has caused rift in the country. Right wing parties are saying if Muslims want halal houses, they they should go back to their countries and demand Halal Houses there.
Meanwhile in the UK, Muslim scholars, intellectuals and Ulema are saying that Muslim living in the UK are enjoying many freedoms, so therefore they should not ask for this. This kind of demand will increase racism & Islamo-phobia. There are already enough problems facing Muslim in the UK. The law about Halal meat is still in the works. If government does this on its own, it will kind of them.
The anti-Islam leader Giert Wilder has condemned this saying this will promote segretation on the basis of sex.
Prominent UK lawyer Sibghitallah Qadri said Muslims should not demand Halal Houses. If Holland has built such house this is, he said, their generosity. ( http://www.hamaramaqsad.com/page_5_big.htm, Dec. 17, 2012)
