Notes from the "THE INCORPORATED TRUSTEES OF THE ISLAMIC COMMUNITY FUND OF HONG KONG" website:

In the early part of this century there were some 400 Muslims from Indian sub-continent working in the Hong Kong Prisons Department. In the beginning their Headquarters were in Arbuthnot Road/Victoria Prison area which is quite close to Shelly Street where there existed a Mosque where they could pray.
