Why this petition matters

Started by Victoria Marsh

My name is Nima and I am a young Muslim woman living in Waterloo. I love my home and my community. Something that is also important to me is my faith.  It is very important for me and all Muslim people to hear the Adhan (call to prayer) being called out into the community. I understand that this could disturb non-Muslim people, but I am hoping that Muslims and the Region of Waterloo can come to an agreement to allow the Adhan to be called out during the month of Ramadan as a compromise! This is a very special time of year for Muslim people. To show this is possible, during the pandemic Cambridge City Council "passed a temporary noise exemption bylaw" allowing this to happen back in 2020. Fellow Muslims and community allies, please sign my petition to help get our voices heard and make a meaningful change for the Islamic community!
