Help Save the House of God (The Islamic Academy of Manchester). It is to be taken away from a religious organisation and given to a commercial property developer.
We strongly oppose the planning application (02531/FO/2013/N2 and 102532/LO/2013/N2 |) which has been submitted by Church Converts to MCC to redevelop the Islamic Academy into flats. We wish for this historical building (The Islamic Academy of Manchester) to remain as a place of worship, educational and community centre. We strongly oppose the plans to convert the place of worship into apartments. We wish for this building to remain as a place of worship and a community centre for future generations.

Allah with us...we must protect and save this mosque...
~PRAY FOR IAM~
I am a local resident living in Ardwick. I am 17 years old and have been going to this mosque ever since I was very young. I firmly believe that this mosque should not be closed down because it has served me and my community for 40 years and personally, this is place for me where I find solace and peace. It is a place where I feel safe and a place where I feel closer to god. This mosque has taught me about the true value of life and equality of all human beings. If this mosque closes down and turned into student accommodations, I will feel very devastated and I will not find that solace and peace that I would find at this mosque. I really hope this message will reach to those who consider closing the mosque.
i strongly support the Islamic Acadamy and its humble efforts in providing excellent community service for those in Ardwick and for the better development of the community as a whole, and this should remain as a place of worship for the many Muslims who come here for what they believe in
