Detailed Analysis: The origin of this news is a famous satire website yournewswire, known for spreading more lies than truth. The news was published on March 5, 2018 titled London Closes 500 Churches; Opens 423 New Mosques (archive here). The article by yournewswire claims that 423 new mosques were being build slowly and steadily in Britain.

The website has taken the reference of the website blog muslimsinbritain. The MuslimsInBritain.org website provides a directory of all UK and Eire masjids/mosques, in list, Google Maps, satnav and smart-phone formats, i.e. it is intended primarily for people looking for a masjid when in an unfamiliar area. So the blog will provide more explanation of the data we have published where this needs elaborating.

The website claims that the list of mosque London (465), Birmingham (167), Bradford (92), Leicester (73), Manchester (66), Blackburn (45), Sheffield (37), Glasgow (34), Oldham (32), Dewsbury (31), Bolton (30), Nottingham (28), Leeds (25), Luton (25), Preston (24), Coventry (21), Walsall (21), Edinburgh (21), Cardiff (20). However it does not give the list of new mosque were opened in london.

In the past YourNewsWire has been the source of or helped spread a long string of persistent rumors, including the fake claim that a terror attack at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England was a “false flag,” or a government plot designed to keep the populace in fear. They also reported the widespread (but completely false) rumor that a second gunman helped carry out the mass shooting in Las Vegas on 1 October 2017.

It’s significant to note that YourNewsWire often uses fictional quotes juice up the clickbait value of their stories, sometimes for the purpose of putting outrageous words in celebrities’s mouths, and other times to invent stories and attribute them to conveniently–anonymous witnesses or officials.
