The management board of the Louvain Central prison in Louvain decided to open the first Islamic prayer room within a prison in Belgium. The decision mirrors the growing demand of incarcerated Muslims for prayer space. The mosque should be able to house 100 devotees. The prison board announced to not have spent any cent for the mosque, instead, the money was collected by the Muslim prisoners to furnish the room themselves.
