The removal of the call to prayer has angered muslims in the area who have branded the locals as intolerant. It comes as anti-muslim sentiment rises in China and the Chinese government cracks down on people practicing the Islamic faith

Environmental protection inspectors allegedly received complaints about noise pollution from local mosques. 
Residents close to the places of worship have complained that Islamic calls to prayer wake them up early in the morning and they claim in some cases have aggravated heart conditions of some patients. 
Locals were said to have put their support for the new move in posts online encouraging other governments to do the same
