Muslim leaders reach out to Treats of Lonsdale owner over sign
by Lori Nickel
It was a conversation cut short by emotion and temper.
On Tuesday afternoon (Sept. 20), area Muslim leaders and a pastor visited Treats Family Restaurant in an attempt to start a dialogue with owner Dan Ruedinger, and invited him to attend a service at the Faribault mosque, Abubakar As-Saddique Islamic Center.
Their invitation was cut short, one witness inside the building stated, as Ruedinger soon became agitated with the men and began shouting about his son's service in Iraq and how he could not be a part of a "silent community" any longer.
