Mosque a source of peace / Reader Response

Philadelphia is blessed to have a leader who actively supports religious communities. In other parts of the country, some politicians garner political support by denigrating religions such as Islam. The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community is in the middle of building our new mosque in North Philadelphia on Broad and Glenwood Avenue, and Mayor Kenney’s visit on July 28th was a tremendous sign of his support and goodwill. We invite every single citizen in Philadelphia to do the same, especially if you have any fears or question about the teachings of Islam. Not only are we here to resolve those issues, but the purpose of our new mosque is also to be a source of peace in the form of humanitarian projects and interfaith dialogue.
