London "Mega Mosque" may be a no-go

The controversial London mosque with a planned capacity of 70,000 worshippers may be blocked by the British government.

That the group driving the project is Tablighi Jamaat should have been enough to spike the planned Islamic center. But it looks like the government will take the path of least resistance:
There are clear planning grounds on which the development could be turned down. It is so close to the main Olympic venues that it may interfere with preparations for the Games.

The Government source said that the planning application needed to be rejected "to give the Olympics a clear run".
