A nightclub in Kiev has been renamed to “No Name” after criticism erupted over its earlier name, “Mecca.” Muslims in Kiev reportedly referred to the earlier name as “an open provocation.” “Giving names of Muslim holy places to hot spots shows utter contempt for Muslims of the Ukraine and the whole world. We therefore, demand to prohibit entertainment facilities to use religious notions,” said a statement issued by the local Muslim community.” City authorities accepted the protest, and persuaded the owner to rename the club.
