Buhras at Arwa Mosque [Archives:2000/50/Local News]

December 11 2000

A military group evacuated Queen Arwa Mosque last week upon arrival of more than 50 cars carrying Buhras who wanted to practice their rituals inside the mosque causing a state of anger and resentment among local people. Inside the mosque people were able to hear them weeping, asking for blessings, beating chests, etc. The delegation included a number of girls who had a bath in the mosque bathrooms for blessing.
