Arab-Americans distribute safety tips for mosques
by Paula Katinas
In the wake of two anti-Muslim attacks outside Brooklyn mosques, Arab-American leaders are urging members of their community to consult a booklet offering tips on keeping religious institutions safe.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations of New York (CAIR-NY) first issued "Best Practices for Mosque and Community Safety" in 2013, but Sadyia Khalique, director of operations for CAIR-NY, said the booklet has timely advice.
Speaking at a press conference at the Islamic Society of Bay Ridge on July 22, Khalique condemned the shocking incidents. "When a mosque is attacked, it hurts here, in the heart," she said, pointing to her chest.
