You may not know this, but Granada was under Islamic rule for almost 800 years. It was the last Muslim kingdom of Spain until 1492 when it was taken back by Catholic King Fernando and Queen Isabel.
The Muslims know their history, hence this prayer gathering at the site of a Virgin Mary statue. They are telling Spain: we’re taking Granada back.
A Muslim prayer gathering at the site of a Virgin Mary statue has sparked outrage among politicians in the Spanish city of Granada, with a far-right party calling on Catholics to respond with a “night of prayer” at the same site.
