Islamic group gets offers of help after fire

WICHITA, Kan. — The Islamic Association of Mid Kansas says it has received an outpouring of support since a mosque in west Wichita was seriously damaged in a fire.

Association spokesman Hussam Madi says individuals and churches have offered support and spaces for group members to worship since the fire on Monday. The association posted a letter of appreciation on its website Wednesday.

The cause of the fire at the mosque remains under investigation. Damage estimates are around $130,000 but fire officials say the mosque might be totally destroyed because of damage to the attic and support structures.

The FBI and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are helping with the investigation.

The Wichita Eagle reports (http://bit.ly/u1f1Vh) that officials with the Islamic group are vowing to rebuild the mosque.

  1. It’s nice to hear of such support in what I consider the “Bible Belt” area of the U.S.

  2. The Islamophobes are attention seeking, but they are always a minority. This is proof. Thank you for sharing something positive with us!
