Johannesburg Muslims unfazed by Tarawih robbery


"I did not expect to be robbed while praying".

By Hassan Isilow


Mohamed Kandulu was immersed in Tarawih, the special nighttime prayers performed during the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, and enjoying the Quran recitation by the mosque imam – when suddenly the tranquility was shattered.

Gunmen stormed the Faizan-e-Bilal Mosque in central Johannesburg late Friday, robbing nearly 200 worshippers at gunpoint.

"I was shocked because I did not expect to be robbed while praying in a mosque," Kandulu told Anadolu Agency at the mosque. "This shows how dangerous our city has become."
