On Tuesday, 23 April 2019 some members of Toowoomba Masjid visited St Anthony’s Church with flowers. Led by President of Islamic Society of Toowoomba, Professor Shahjahan Khan, and Imam Abdul Kader the team felt a bit relieved to be able to reciprocate some of the humanity shown to the Muslim community by their Christian friends after the Christchurch mosques attacks.
Toowoomba’s Mosque was badly burned last year by arsonists. Plans are afoot to rebuild the mosque and make it larger so it may accommodate more worshippers. These plans are welcomed by the community in Toowoomba.
