More time give in construction of TN mosque

Posted: Updated:

RUTHERFORD CO., TN (WRCB) - A federal judge has allowed more time for the construction of a mosque southeast of Nashville.

According to the Tennessean, a U.S. District Judge gave mosque supporters until August 15th to complete construction for its occupancy in Rutherford County.

Opponents have spent two years trying to halt construction of the mosque for the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro.

Last week, a federal judge ruled the congregation has a right to worship there as soon as the building is ready.
