Stainless House of Victories

Western Europe’s biggest mosque is about to open its doors in Morden, Surrey, UK (The Guardian, 3 October 2003). The GBP 15 million mosque has been named the “Baitul Futuh”, which means House of Victories. A 23-metre (75ft) stainless steel dome has been erected over what was once a diary depot. The walls under it are covered with 21,000 square feet of reconstituted Bologna marble. The mosque has been built by 1000 Ahmadi volunteers working round the clock. The Ahmadis are not considered Muslims by the Muslim Council of Britain. Registered as a charity in the UK, Ahmadis preach “love for all and hatred for none” and are against any form of religious compulsion.
