Islamic conference won't be in Rolling Meadows
by Madhu Krishnamurthy
An Islamic conference scheduled for this weekend in Rolling Meadows is searching for a new venue, after The Meadows Club was flooded with calls and emails from conservatives demanding the event be canceled.
Organizers of the Khilafah Conference 2012, titled "Revolution: Liberation by Revelation — Muslims Marching Toward Victory," have not yet found an alternate place to host it in the Chicago area, said a Hizb ut-Tahrir America spokesman.
Organizers were expecting roughly 1,000 attendees to hear speakers discuss topics such as the causes, motivations and reasons for revolutions; the revolution in Syria; and forms of governance such as an Islamic state, secular state, and democracy.
