A Palestinian member of Israeli parliament has raised 'azan' (call of prayers) in the Knesset (Israeli parliament) to protest a controversial bill.

Geo News reported that Ahmad Tibi raised the azan during his speech in the parliament and said the proposed bill demonstrated the Israeli government's 'Islamophobia'. 

The controversial bill, if passed, would bar mosques from using loudspeakers for delivering call to prayer (azan) in occupied East Jerusalem.

It reported that another member Taleb Abu Arar also started the azan and went on to complete it, despite attempts by the other members of the parliament to stop him.

The proposed bill has drawn criticism from various circles, with many Palestinians calling it a blatant violation of their freedom to worship.
