Peace ring around Cincinnati Islamic Centre

SHAFAQNA – According to Huffington Post, over 100 Muslims, Christians and Jews gathered to form a symbolic “peace ring” around the mosque’s entrance of the Islamic Centre of Greater Cincinnati.

The group was inspired by a similar peace ring that was formed around a synagogue in Oslo, Norway in February following an attack against the Jewish community in Denmark earlier that month.

Event organizer Ericka King-Betts said she wanted to bring the same message of interfaith unity to her Cincinnati community. “We wanted to replicate that here in Cincinnati to show support for all faiths, and especially for the Muslim community,” King-Betts, executive director of the Cincinnati Human Relations Commission, told The Huffington Post.
