A controversial mosque reopens this morning with only a week left in the Month of Ramadan

The reopening of a controversial mosque in Murfreesboro, Tennessee has been delayed by years of protests and lawsuits. Today, the mosque will hold its first prayers with a week left in the Holy Month of Ramadan. The opening occurs after another mosque located in Joplin, Missouri was burned down. Federal investigators are still looking for information and looking into this as possible arson.

CNN’s George Howell discusses his exclusive look at the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro.

    I am a Christian and I want to congratulate my Muslem brothers and sisters in Murfreesboro on their new Mosque. They have every right to have a place to worship just like every other resident does in Murfreesboro! This country has seen this hate before. As Dr. King once said " The arc of justice is long, but it bends towards righteousness." Persevere! In the end, you will prevail!
