Murfreesboro mosque to open Friday

Posted: Updated:

(WRCB) - A new Tennessee mosque, that has been the subject of arson, protests and a lawsuit, is expected to finally open for prayers on Friday.

Officials with the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro expect to receive a temporary occupancy permit.

Construction was nearly shut down in May, after a Rutherford County judge ruled the meeting where mosque construction was approved was not sufficiently advertised to the public.

Last month, federal prosecutors stepped in to protect the religious liberty of mosque members.
