"We do not consider this an honor, nor a privilege, for the historic mosque and its founder Habib Swaleh to have its images portrayed in such a way. Therefore, we kindly ask you to show respect for the mosque by removing the portrait of our mosque on your shirt, to show us that you really respect the people of Lamu and the mosque "- wrote in a letter from Abubakar Badaëy, Secretary General of the Riyadha mosque.
