MINNEAPOLIS – A fight at Minnesota’s largest mosque is getting a lot of attention in the Somali community, with many saying it exposes a divide between those who want the mosque to take on a more political role while others want the mosque to stay out of politics altogether.
On Monday night, police responded to Abubakar As-Saddique Islamic Center, the state’s largest and most controversial mosque, after a fight broke out during a religious lecture led by Imam Sheik Abdirahman Omar.
The religious leader of the mosque was recently quoted as saying he doesn’t care what happens in Mogadishu, Somalia. Instead, he cares about what’s happening in Minnesota.
