Ottawa Mosque concerned by sharp rise in young men converting to Islam
One of Ottawa's largest mosques is reporting a sharp increase in the number of young men converting to Islam, which started after the deadly shootings on Oct. 22 at the National War Memorial and Parliament Hill.
Samy Metwally, the imam at the Ottawa Mosque, told CBC News he's never seen so many young men coming in after a major incident, wanting to become Muslims.
He says it's against his religious beliefs to turn them away.
