IT Communications for Rochdale Mosques

    Two Councillors Zulfiqar Ali and Mohammad Sharif of Rochdale saw the successful completion recently of an ambitious project, designed to improve communications among a number of mosques in the Borough. The IT equipment installed by Advance Technologies for appropriate information technology at Wardleworth, Spotland and Deeplish mosques was described as “excellent” by Councillor Ali who also thanked the Mosques committees for their co-operation and teamwork. The Cabinet Member for Community Cohesion added: “I am often advised by various statutory and voluntary organisations that it can be difficult to contact our Mosques committees, even in urgent situations. A main cause of concern has been that mosques did not have adequate communication tools.” He said that project work over the past six months had ensured “effective communications between our Mosques and the Police, the Fire Service, community groups, etc.” Councillor Sharif, the Portfolio holder for Regeneration, said: “Community cohesion includes bringing communities closer together, and this initiative ensures the mosques can now come into that process.”
