The Sofia mosque will reduce noise levels during Friday prayers from now on, so that it does disturb the surrounding community, the Muslim leadership announced on June 2 2011, reported by the private television channel bTV.
Two of the loudspeakers have been dismounted completely while the others will be turned down. The statement was made during a meeting between Sofia mayor Yordanka Fandukova, Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov and the chief mufti, Mustafa Hadji, the report said.
The chief mufti also promised that those worshippers who cannot find find room in the mosque during the Friday prayers will no longer be allowed to pray on pavements outside the temple, a bone of contention in the past.
