That silly person caused a serious problem to the developer and I believe that the developer of the project should announce the final height 591M officially to avoid such silly rumors.
ya, the rumor has spread throughout the world, even in Maldives (only 300,000 people) the local newspapers have reported his comments as fact.

It's a Lunar Observatory. So the light is not a big problem. The Moon is very important for moslims

The sighting of the moon and the location in the horizon, not the rock itself

It was also in my Dutch newspaper (NRC Next), with a mega impression covering 2 full pages.
