BOSTON — A Boston-area mosque says its celebration of one of Islam’s holiest days has been cancelled after the host venue received complaints that women and children were being excluded.
The Masjid Al Rahma announced on its Facebook page on Thursday that it wasn’t hosting Eid al-Adha prayer Friday morning because the host hotel in Revere, Massachusetts, cancelled the event.
A hotel manager confirmed the cancellation, but declined to elaborate. Mosque leaders said the hotel received calls critical of the men only service.
Assalam brothers and Sisters
It is with Sad news that I have to inform you that The Comfort Inn will no longer be allowing us their Board meeting room for Eid Prayer or any more Friday prayers. They have been helping us for all Friday prayers for about a year while we are searching for a mosque to buy.
A woman who chose to keep anonymous and hide her identity called the hotel a bunch of times threatened to bring the news and caused them problems
