Islamic Center of Mufreesboro: Call the Rutherford County Mayor & ask county lawyers appeal the decision to halt construction

As you may have heard, yesterday a Rutherford County Judge ordered that construction to the new Murfreesboro mosque must come to a halt. However, today the County stated that they will not issue a cease work order anytime soon. Below are action steps that you can partake in to ensure that religious equality is preserved in Tennessee. We have a limited amount of time to take action. Please help in anyway you can.

Please call the Mayor and ask him to have his county lawyers appeal the decision that was made yesterday! This is of the utmost importance – if the lawyers appeal, the mosque may be able to continue construction.

The mosque may be forced to reapply for another permit – please call the Rutherford County Planning Commission and ask them to support religious freedom and grant the mosque a new permit.
