Lleida’s North Street mosque continues to be closed one year after the local government, finding the place of worship did not fulfil the safety requirements, decided to shut it down on July 2010. The relationship between the imam of the Salafi Islamic community and the city council has deteriorated because of the lack of a solution or an alternative place. Currently, the Muslim community continues without a place of worship using one public park for their religious practices.
