Civil Complaint and request for Injunction

Islamic Community Center of Mid Westchester

Oct 20, 2016 — As Salamu Alaikum,

ICCMW has filed a civil complaint and request for injunction on Sep 21st 2016 against the City of Yonkers for discriminating against the Muslim community of Colonial Heights in our application to build a mosque. The injunction has been filed to nullify the decision designating ICCMW property as a landmark.

The City of Yonkers, City Council voting process to designate ICCMW’s property was one of the fastest, and most biased land-marking of a property in Yonkers, New York. The designation targeted ICCMW’s application to build a mosque in the City of Yonkers based on religion.

More details and updates to follow.

JazakAllah Khair and Thank You for supporting us.
