In spite of all the propaganda that the USA is the last best hope for humanity since it epitomizes, or so it claims, human rights, the facts are rather nasty and ugly. Scores of racially motivated violence and bigotry-ridden activities prove that the USA is far from the perception it creates. Getting permission for a mosque in a locality is not easy and can take decades even when the land where it is supposed to be built has been owned or bought by Muslims. It is much easier, as a matter of fact, for Christians to open a church in almost all Muslim countries, minus, of course, Saudi Arabia.
Just read the news here to see why Muslims are suing a town in Michigan for their right for a mosque.
“With a vociferous and racist member of the Planning Commission leading the charge, the Planning Commission voted to reject the site plan,” said the lawsuit, filed in US District Court in Detroit on Wednesday.
“With no other choice, the American Islamic Community Centre has filed this suit seeking equitable relief to build the mosque and seeks damages as the City of Sterling Heights’ conduct violates, among other things, the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act…and the First and Fourteenth Amendments to the United States Constitution.”
