Muslim Cemetery Under Assault: Bigotry in Life and Death

For those who are not aware, the Osmanli Dergah has recently come under attack by a handful of men and women from the town of Sidney, NY.  Led by community supervisor, Bob McCarthy, these people are making the claim that the Dergah has illegally built a cemetery on their property and are now demanding that the bodies buried there be dug up and the cemetery shut down.

The Osmanli Dergah has already provided official documentation from the town, allowing them to build the cemetery, but this fact has been largely ignored by McCarthy and his followers.

Please feel free to send Mr. McCarthy a polite note expressing your concerns.
