An Islamic group is proposing to build Western Europe’s biggest mosque in East London in time for the 2012 Olympic Games…

Tablighi Jamaat – a worldwide Islamic missionary group – is proposing the mosque as its new UK headquarters.

The group envisions a futuristic design for the three-storey mosque, with wind turbines taking the place of minarets and an overall capacity of 70,000 when surrounding buildings are taken into account.

"It would be something never seen before in this country," Abdul Khalique, a senior member of Tablighi Jamaat said.
