Georgetown, GINA, July 30, 2011 - President Bharrat Jagdeo today expressed satisfaction over the level of tolerance that Guyanese now enjoy. He said this could have only happened if there are enlightened leaders and, organisations such as the Central Islamic Organisation (CIOG).

Speaking at the opening of the Masjid Al-Nur, Islamic Center, located in one of the newest housing schemes, Parfaite Harmonie, Region Three, President Jagdeo expressed pleasure that the scheme has gotten such a wonderful building and that he is also pleased CIOG is already thinking about how this House of God can be used, not just as a place of worship and for Muslims but a place of service to the residents of the West Bank Demerara community.

The masjid was built by Bobby Ramroop, at a cost of $70M.  Ramroop said he invested in the masjid because it was the desire of his mother to build it in honour of her late parents and as promised, was handed over to the CIOG a few days before the start of Ramadan.
