Religions want exemption from Clean Air Zone Charges

Calls to exempt mosque and church worshippers from Clean Air Zone charges

Council chiefs are facing calls to exempt mosque and church worshippers from Clean Air Zone charges while they pray or mourn their dead - or risk accusations of discrimination.
Birmingham's Central Mosque - the biggest in Europe - attracts around 5,000 Muslim worshippers every week, rising to around 25,000 at Eid.
But the mosque falls inside the charging zone set up to try to combat air quality issues in the city, meaning any visitor whose car does not meet strict anti-pollution criteria faces a daily £8 fee.


I don't know why they getting all worked-up. Won't God sort it out?

But wait. Could it be that the mosque/church Imams/vicars could start to lose money? Surely not...

Is there no public transport to these places?

I expect so. But maybe bus times don't coincide with church/mosque times or are too infrequent. :dunno:

I'm sure they'd put buses on if 5000 Muslims were going to use them. But isn't mosque at around 5 on a Friday. I find it hard to believe there's no public transport then.

Ridiculous to try and claim discrimination though. Presumably churches in the same area are subject to the same charges, as are all secular places of interest. Why are religions never happy with the same rules for everyone?
