Toilets first, Mosques later
Sam Jones in The Guardian: ...According to the UN, 2.5 billion people still lack “improved sanitation facilities” – defined as ones that “hygienically separate human excreta from human contact”, down only 7% since 1990, when 2.7 billion lacked access, and more than a billion people – most of whom live in rural areas – have to defecate in gutters, behind bushes or into water. More people have access to mobile phones than toilets, it says.

...Age-old taboos around toilets and defecation, he added, were finally breaking down. He pointed to India, where the new prime minister, Narendra Modi, tackled the issue during his election campaign, calling on the nation to build “toilets first and temples later”.
