LILBURN, Ga — The Dar-E-Abbas Islamic center currently sits on a small plot of land on Highway 29 and Hood Road. They want to raze the current building and build a two-story mosque.
It’s that expansion that has residents living in the area up in arms.
“I am prejudice, I just don’t like Muslims and I don’t want them taking over our neighborhood,” said one resident who lives near the mosque. He did not want to be identified for fear of retaliation.
“I don’t want someone coming to my house and burning it down.” (More)
