REUTERS photoChildren whom come 180 times for prayer will be given a free tablet PC, according to the imam of a mosque in the Central Anatolian province of Yozgat.
"We wanted to attract the attention of youngsters and encourage them to pray by capitalizing on their enthusiasm for technology and the Internet,” said Cebrail Öztürk, the imam of the Dayılı Mosque in Yozgat’s Akdağmadeni district.
The mosque plans to give a tablet PC to the children who come to the mosque 180 times within two months.
