Islamic Society Wins Landmark Ruling

03 Jan 2017 11:33 AM | Anonymous

A NJ.Com article detailed a groundbreaking decision by District Court Judge Shipp and quoted Adeel Mangi, MuBANY Director, whose unwavering commitment to this case is an inspiration.

The court found that Bernard Township admitted actions constituted discrimination under Religious Land Usage and Institutionalized Persons Act ("RLUIPA") and separately finds their actions were unconstitutional. The RLUIPA discussion is groundbreaking and makes new law on the discrimination prong -- it will likely be cited in mosque and other RLUIPA cases around the country.

On behalf of MuBANY, a very Happy New Year!
