Celebrate New Mosque in Regina - Nov 3rd
Regina’s Islamic Association is set to become the owner of the Pump Roadhouse, and its leaders are calling on local Muslims to visit the Victoria Avenue location on Saturday, November 3rd, to celebrate the site of their future mosque.
The plan is to demolish the existing bar and build a new facility, giving the city’s Sunni Muslims their first purpose-built mosque.
Regina is already home to a mosque, about three kilometres away on Eastgate Drive. But its worshippers hail from the Ahmadiyya movement, not from the Sunni Muslim population represented by the Islamic Association of Saskatchewan.
The new space is sorely needed to accommodate a community with an estimated 13,000 members.
