Immigrant Muslim factions still battling over California mosque

via Battle over control of Islamic Center of Northridge leads to contentious vote – LA Daily News.

A contentious two-year battle over control of one of the oldest mosques in the San Fernando Valley comes to a head on Sunday, when a court-ordered election will determine who will sit on its board of directors.

Two groups have been wrestling in court over the Islamic Center of Northridge, a Sunni institution that has a 20,000-square-foot mosque in Granada Hills and a smaller center in Northridge.

Hundreds of members of both factions are expected to show up Sunday, and organizers are expecting the presence of security guards and police officers – even as children and families gather nearby for face-painting and pony rides at a pre-Ramadan “Unity” festival organized by the center.

The fight has centered more over questions of legal authority and financial management than theological divisions. And it has turned nasty at times, with accusations of using the mosque’s funds for personal enrichment, the deployment of intimidating security guards, occasional ethnic slur-hurling and even hotly disputed allegations of one side supporting foreign terrorist groups.

Hmmm. Do tell. The vote took place and here’s a picture from the event.

Even though they are battling each other, sharia must still rule and that means women are still second class.

We told you about this foreign battle that was brought to the U.S. mainland in this previous post, California: Muslim factions battle, exchange threats over mosque:

The two sides, each made up mainly of Pakistani and Afghan immigrants, are battling in court over leadership elections and greater openness at the Granada Hills mosque

In one lawsuit, a dissident group accuses the mosque leaders of methods that “resemble Taliban-style tactics one might presume to exist only outside the boundaries of the United States.”

The suit also quotes a threatening, profane voicemail message it says was left for one of the plaintiffs, in which the caller allegedly said, “Don’t … with us. We are Pashtuns. We will kill you.”

  1. One solution to this opportunity is to take all participants and put them on a boat. Take them 100 miles off shore until they settle their differences by whatever means. Then sink the boat!

    • Hmmm???? That’s a GOOD idea! Since according to Sharia law…that would mean only the Male Sharia-loving Males would be onboard since no one else has any significance! Why waste the fuel? Just sink the boat with all on board “inside” with the doors locked!

  2. It is a simple matter to decide…DESTROY IT!
