Fremont mosque to host interfaith event

FREMONT — Members of the East Bay Muslim community are reaching out to other faiths with an open house Feb. 16 at a Fremont mosque to commemorate World Interfaith Harmony Week.

The annual event, initiated by the United Nations General Assembly in a 2010 proclamation, is celebrated in the first week of February as a way to promote harmony between all people regardless of their faith.

The open house is being hosted by the Islamic Society of East Bay, at 33330 Peace Terrace. It is scheduled to begin at 1:30 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 16.

“We are here to show our friends and neighbors that American Muslims are committed to the well-being of our community and continue to play an active role in our society,” said Ahsan Baig, chair of the mosque’s outreach committee.
