An imam has sparked controversy by reciting the Muslim call to prayer in a Church of England cathedral without permission.
A video recording of the man wearing a white robe was filmed on Saturday last week at Blackburn Cathedral and posted on the internet. It was performed for an audience of about 400 people as part of a concert to commemorate the armistice.
Peter Howell-Jones, the dean of Blackburn Cathedral, told the Sunday Times: "I don't think this should have happened here. If people are going to call for my resignation there's nothing more I can say or do to people to pacify them because actually I agree with their arguments."
The call to prayer was performed as part of a performance of Karl Jenkins' The Armed Man (A Mass For Peace) in the nave of the cathedral.
