In line with him, “No residential lodging needs to be transformed into a spot of worship for the general public by adherents of whichever religion with out due compliance with the supply of any extant legislation.”
He additional defined that the locations of worship demolished violated the land and use act, including that there isn’t any compensation for such demolition.
