The new owner of Suzanne's Fine Dining in the Town of Wheatfield said there's nothing to fear. The former restaurant will not be turned into a Mosque.
Dr. Mohammad Agwa said after purchasing the building for $666,000, his first thought was turning the building into an Islamic cultural center, a place for safe learning. But Agwa was met with hate calls. So he hosted an open meeting for the public to voice concerns.
"We all have fears from the other especially if this other is unknown, and for them, we're the unknown," Rupie Ghazal of the Islamic Center of Niagara said. "They don't know much about us and this is why we wanted to have this open house. We wanted to introduce who we are."
