Swedish police Tuesday granted a mosque permission to hold a weekly call to prayer, triggering divisions among politicians and the public, five months ahead of elections in a country which has taken in waves of asylum seekers in recent years.According to a poll conducted by social research company SIFO and published by the private broadcaster TV4 in March, 60 percent of respondents said they wanted to ban the call to prayer from mosques in Sweden.The police said in their statement that the mosque in Vaxjo will be allowed to hold the call to prayer, the Azan, every Friday for three minutes and 45 seconds.
