One Country Has NO Mosques and Just Rejected Muslims’ Proposal to Build One

According to a study by Pew Research Center, there were only 9,000 Muslims in Cuba, and the country’s Muslim population has been fairly stagnate.
Now, we may know why Islam has grown very little in the Caribbean country.
Cuba currently has zero mosques. Muslims are forced to meet and pray in the privacy of their own homes, reports the World Bulletin.
Pedro Lazo Torres, the leader of Havana’s Muslim community, decided to take action, joining forces with Turkey’s Religious Affairs Foundation (TDV).
In April, TDV assistant manager Mustafa Tutkun requested permission to begin construction on a large mosque, which was to be designed after the famous Ortakoy mosque in Istanbul.
The TDV has planned for a much broader project of building mosques all over the Caribbean. A similar project will be completed in Haiti by the end of 2014.
Torres proposed that the country’s first mosque be built, citing the capital of Havana as the ideal location for the expansion and welcoming of Cuba’s Muslim citizens.

Cuba immediately rejected the proposal.

Because of the denial, Cuban Muslims have resorted to worshiping in Torres’ living room.
Perhaps communist Cuba knows something much of the world doesn’t. They may have seen the devastation Islam brings with immigration: riots, demands for halal, required changes to suit the hijab, increased rape, refusal to assimilate, or even the annoyance of a 5 a.m. call to prayer.
Or maybe they have simply watched the fall of Middle Eastern countries to discriminatory, inhumane Sharia law, and bloody jihad, which breeds like a deadly mold in the dark, dank comfort of mosques.
