(Fargo, ND) -- A prominent Islamic group is hosting an open house event following a recent vandalism event in a local cemetery.
The Islamic Society of Fargo and Moorhead is hosting an open house on Saturday, November 5th, between 2 p.m and 4 p.m. A social media post says the goal of the open house is to "build a bridge in understanding" Islamic values, beliefs, and to dissuade islamophobia within the F-M metro. Those who attend can expect snacks, refreshments, and a guest speaker.
The Islamic Society says their cemetery was vandalized sometime before October 22nd. They say five of their cement vaults, and the storage building on the property, suffered significant damage.
