Oshkosh mosque location approved despite opposition

OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) — The Oshkosh City Council has approved the location of a mosque, despite objections from neighbors.

The council Tuesday night approved a permit that allows the Ahmadiyaa Muslim Community to convert a former funeral home into a mosque and community center.

The council’s decision came after lengthy public comment from both sides. Neighbors opposed to the permit argued the mosque was the wrong use for the site and would be used 16 to 18 hours a day.

WLUK-TV reports Ahmadiyaa leader Khurram Ahmad said they will do their best to address the neighbors concerns. He said part of the Muslim faith is to be accommodating to neighbors.
