ROCHESTER, Minn. – Masjed Abubakr Al-Seddig is thanking people in Rochester for their support after being vandalized.
In June, bacon was left outside the mosque.
In a quick response, the community hosted a vigil the next day. Early on a Sunday morning religious leaders and community members sang and stated their support for the mosque and Muslim community in Rochester.
Masjed Abubakr Al-Seddig thanked community members with Somali tea and food.
“They are just very courteous people and courtesy is something we need in the market place,” Julia Pearson, who attended the event, said. “And their example is the best rebuke to the people that did such terrible things to them.”
