❗️A few corrections to this @WSJ article about "Islamic" London, based on my experiences living in the Tower Hamlets neighbourhood mentioned:
wsj.com/articles/a-vis…
"The adhan, or call to prayer, echoed through the neighborhood."

Yes, the call to prayer can be heard from East London Mosque. As can the sound of church bells, sirens, and drunken revellers.
"The scene could have been lifted out of Riyadh."

It seems the author has never been to Riyadh and has no knowledge of Saudi law.
