First South African Gay-friendly Mosque, Mysteriously Gutted by Fire!
Posted by Vanviki O. Victor
South Africa’s first gay-friendly church called the “Open Mosque,” which the authorities in Cape Town, where the mosque is located, were planning on shutting down Last month, over allegations that the building violated some city planning regulations.
The mosque has been damaged by a fire outbreak yesterday night, according to Vanguard reports. There were no casualties or injuries, and no arrests have been made.
The founder of the Mosque, Taj Hargey, expressed that he believed the incident was a deliberate arsonist attack. He alleged that footage from closed circuit cameras revealed some unidentified people who visited the facility two hours before the incident.
Police authorities are currently investigating the matter.
The mosque, which allows women to lead prayers, allows Christian worshipers, and welcomes gay people, opened in Cape Town last month despite opposition and threats of violence.
