Mosque Sues Lilburn

The Muslim congregation of Dar-E-Abbas will sue Lilburn for violations of  the Religious Land Use and Institutionalized Persons Act and other provisions of the state and federal constitutions arising out of the Lilburn City Council denied a rezoning request by Dar-E-Abbas for a 20,000-square-foot mosque, cemetery and gymnasium on about 8 acres at U.S. 29 and Hood Road.

“We think the city clearly discriminated against these people, particularly in light of the fact they’ve worshipped on this land 12 to 13 years,” [Doug Dillard, attorney for the congregation of Dar-E-Abbas] said Wednesday.
