A man has been arrested for using a Male’ mosque’s microphone to recite the call to prayer at 11am, rather than the mandated midday prayer time.

A witness told Haveeru that the man continued repeating the call to prayer as he was handcuffed and escorted away by police.

“He was looking upwards to the sky and yelling, ‘God is great’,” the witness told Haveeru.
