I’m a practising Muslim. I observe the five daily prayers. Ordinarily, I look forward to the call to prayer. But even I wish the village mosque would turn the volume down on their minaret sound system. Better still, just turn it off completely, for there really is no need for the village mosque to be in competition with the town; the whole of the valley can hear that one perfectly well. Sometimes, I feel we have completely missed the point of our religious practices. Call people with wisdom and beautiful speech, not by blasting them to pieces with a megaphone.
