Uber driver spotted praying on a pavement in Knightsbridge
Residents of genteel Egerton Gardens in Knightsbridge expressed surprise on Tuesday last when an Uber driver laid out his prayer mat on their pavements.
Having parked his Toyota Prius and opened its boot, the man – whom one resident described as “perfectly polite” – prayed in full view of the most expensive houses in Britain for some considerable period of time. He seemed utterly at ease with his surroundings and harmed no one.
Another house owner told The Steeple Times: “I thought Muslims were meant to pray in ‘clean places’ only. I know we live in the Royal Borough but is our dusty street off the Brompton Road, really that?”
