Before it all unraveled, a plan to use Duke University's chapel tower in a call to prayer for the school's Muslim community was meant to promote religious unity and pluralism. But after a flurry of objections arrived by phone and email—along with reported security concerns—Duke canceled a plan to have members of the Muslim Students Association read a moderately amplified call to prayer from the tower for about three minutes each Friday.
Instead, Muslims will gather for their call to prayer in a grassy area near the 210-foot Gothic tower before heading into a room in the chapel for their weekly prayer service.
