Damn, Praying to Allah On a NYC Sidewalk

Anyone who believes in the existence of a God has a screw loose.

But some nutjobs have several screws loose.


Because nutcases make asses of themselves with their public prayer rituals, not to mention inconveniencing the public.

Last week, as we were walking around the Upper East Side of Manhattan we saw a Muslim cab driver take out a small carpet, unroll it right on the sidewalk (at the intersection of E.70th St and 5th Avenue) and start praying.

The carpet was rolled out at an odd angle, presumably to let the man pray in the direction of Mecca.

And all these happened while the cab was parked right next to a fire-hydrant, a violation of New York City traffic laws. 🙁

We strongly urge New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg to pass rules to prevent people from rolling out carpets and praying on the city sidewalks.

If Muslims, Christians, Hindus or Jews want to pray, it must be in the privacy of their homes or at a place of worship.

Prayer must not be on the NYC sidewalks inconveniencing and irritating pedestrians.

If you allow this public praying nonsense, tomorrow some of these nut-jobs will bring a Lamb or Goat and insist on a public sacrifice on 5th Avenue to celebrate Bakrid and the day after that only Allah knows what they’ll demand.

America’s freedoms must not be abused.

Will Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates or Pakistan allow a Christian, Jew or Hindu to pray on the public sidewalks inconveniencing pedestrians?

Hell , No!

    This is nothing, absolutely nothing, compared to what we, living in mumbai, have to face during the festival of ganesh chaturthi.

    Baboons and chimps in the form of humans come and dance on the streets as though they’re on an overdose of every possible drug known to humankind. Plus, they bring out their trucks and lorries, which jam traffic for hours.

    I simply wish that someone will jail these bastards for inconveniencing the public…but alas, that doesn’t happen. Things like this are allowed to pass in the name of religion.

    And I can’t blame anyone for not rising up against this madness, because if they do, these shitheads will start rioting and cause even more harm and damage.

    Won’t happen even in your grandson’s lifetime.

      prabhuji, the last time I checked, Ganapatiji didn’t ask for anyone to slit the throat(s) of innocent animals whilst repeating “Om Sri Ganapataye Namahah”!

      SearchIndia.com Responds:

      Your ‘Innocent animals’ are Kaffirs and Infidels. They do not pray to the Merciful Allah five times a day.

        “prabhuji, the last time I checked, Ganapatiji didn’t ask for anyone to slit the throat(s) of innocent animals whilst repeating “Om Sri Ganapataye Namahah”!”

        So, your rebuttal to someone’s discomfort with revelers causing trouble is to set up a stupid strawman regarding slaughter of animals during Eid? How fundamentally moronic!

        • rama dasa   September 20, 2011 at 7:40 am

          Well prabhuji,imagine yourself walking down an NYC sidewalk and seeing some jack@$$ slaughtering a cow or a pigeon or whatever the hell they sacrifice nowadays,does that send a good message to outsiders?

          Anyway if this bozo wants to do namaaz fine,but then,as SI said,only Allah knows what will happen

        This year’s Ganesh chathurthi procession took one’s life, in a balcony collapse!


        According to media, the balcony was over-crowded.

          Just think of the ones who were standing below that balcony. Smash!!!

          Sheer madness to see the idol. If you look at the pictures in the news link, given the huge crowd, if something happens to someone in the middle of the crowd, no help could be offered.

          SearchIndia.com Responds:


          To some extent, we can understand if a person dies while having fun or doing something adventurous but to die while watching a Made in China idol. Wow, that surely must be the acme of stupidity.

        • boopalanj   September 20, 2011 at 12:35 pm

          Did you watch the balcony collapsing in the video?

          SearchIndia.com Responds:


          That’s Ganesh’s way of blessing his followers. 🙁

    There’s going to be an Islamic festival next weekend at the Masjid, about 20 min. away from my house, was thinking about going but since there probably won’t be much vegetarian food, might stop at the Art Museum instead…..Subannallah!

      And see how they eat Biriyani in Saudi 🙂

      Holy cow goat, that looks like a Biryani pool.

      • boopalanj   September 13, 2011 at 4:11 pm

        I guess, it is camel biryani! 😉

        SearchIndia.com Responds:

        Camel Biryani?

        That’s one thing we’ve not tasted! 🙁

        But we doubt it. It must be lamb.

        • முனிAndy   September 14, 2011 at 10:31 am

          That apparently is camel biryani..

          Does SI like steak? I have become a steak fan off-late. What is your favorite doneness.. I tried well done and medium.. I think I liked the medium better, but will go for medium well next time.

          SearchIndia.com Responds:

          (Sorry for the delay in processing. Just returned from Philly.)

          1. OMG, that indeed is Camel Biryani. They even have Camel Biryani Rice. Do they grow that in the Thanjavur Delta? 😉

          Hey, did you notice there’s even a picture of Obama with his dog in your link. As best as we can tell, both the biped and the quadruped are Black and look a whit not like a Brownish Camel. Well, somebody has a weird sense of humor.

          2. Steak – Can’t ever remember having it. Unless, we went with a group some years back and just can’t remember eating it. Most likely not.

          The next time we’re in Philly we’ll visit the city’s famous Pat’s Steak House. If we’d seen your comment earlier, we’d have gone there today. We spent the better part of the morning in Philly.

          • முனிAndy   September 14, 2011 at 8:06 pm

            Pat’s seems to be specialized in Philly Cheesesteaks.. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheesesteak
            which is different from the style that I was talking about..

            SearchIndia.com Responds:


            BTW, NYC’s most famous steakhouse – Peter Luger.

            Here’s some more info on Peter Luger.

            Since we increasingly believe only animals eat other animals, we’re going to soon declare a permanent ceasefire in the unequal battle between our ravenous appetite and the defenseless animals.

          • முனிAndy   September 15, 2011 at 8:30 am

            Good idea (from a health POV — I don’t agree about the animal cruelty justification.. that’s another absurd notion like religion, IMHO.).. Maybe you can try steak for one last time before calling the battle off..

            SearchIndia.com Responds:

            Will try steak one of these days at a decent place.

    Hot girls man!! I would have been distracted 😉

    A Sikh friend here once told us that the greatest pleasure in life is to f*ck a white p*ssy. Of course, being a Sardar he went into vivid details on the subject close to his heart. Since SI is a family-friendly blog we can’t elaborate. 😉 Now, he’s happily married to an Indian girl from one of the Southeast Asian countries.

    Off-topic: Other people have also guessed/googled the answer.

    We’ve updated the post. Please read.

    Lol 😀 You mean like the ” white P*ssy” of Kate Winslet in the film “THE READER” 🙂

    No can tell because we have yet to see The Reader.

    Great, now if only the timid Jew (NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg) introduces similar regulations in Manhattan.
