कई वर्षो की देरी के बाद आखिरकार युनान सरकार ने राजधानी एथेस मे बनायी जाने वाली पहली आधुनिक मस्जिद के निर्माण स्थल का अनवरण कर दिया है। गौरतलब है कि एथेस मे मुसलमानो के लिये कोई मस्जिद नही है। यहां के शक्तिशाली कट्टरपन्थी चर्च के विरोध के वावजूद सरकार ने राजधानी एथेंस मे बढती मुस्लिम आबादी के लिये मस्जिद बनाने की वकालत की थी।

यहां ज्यादातर एशिया से आये मुस्लिम रह रहे है। मस्जिद का निर्माण बोटानीकोज क्षेत्र मे होगा जो मेट्रो पडाव के नजदीक होगा। मस्जिद निर्माण के लिये सरकार धन मुहैया करायेगी।
