A residents group has been branded racist after it urged locals to ‘stock up on ear plugs’ to block out Ramadan prayers from a nearby mosque.
The EH4 Residents Association, which represents those living in Drylaw, Edinburgh, has been slammed by equality campaigners after it posted the controversial statement on its Facebook page.
The message written on May 30, which has since been removed, said: ‘Ramadan is early this year. Jun 18-Jul 17. If you live close to the [Blackhall] mosque and have to stay put, might be an idea to stock up on headphones/ earplugs etc.’
In the future everyone will be racist for 15 minutes.
