As all of you are aware of the tragic incident of New Zealand, we want to assure you that we are taking safety and security of the masjid and the community very seriously. We have been in contact with the authorities who have reassured us for keeping a close eye on the premises.
At the same time we are working to make a comprehensive short and long term plan to address the safety and security of our community and the premises. In the meantime we request the community to be very vigilant and report any suspicious activity to the police immediately.
We would also like to inform you that we have received overwhelming support from many communities around.
Kindly note that as a temporary measure, the Masjid will open for the prayers only and will be kept locked otherwise. We are also considering to keep the Masjid locked during prayers and Islamic school. In that instance we will request the community to arrive at the Masjid at least few minutes before prayer and school time.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
Board of Director, KMRA
