Discrimination may cause difficulties for Hong Kong Muslims to build mosque, say equal rights advocates

September 6, 2015

Segregated schools in Hong Kong sets the stage for locals to live “parallel lives” from a young age, which may in turn cause misunderstanding, isolation and racial prejudice, equal rights advocates say.

The Kwun Tong Mosque, located inside an apartment building, is running at full capacity and is in need of a larger structure.  “It’s not only about whether they can build a mosque or not, it’s also about how the community accepts this idea,” says Hong Kong Unison.
