A suspicious package (back-pack type) was found near Masjid Al-Ihsaan, 6630 Pershing Ave., on January 5th at around 4:20 p.m., according to Orlando police dispatch records.  Police, Bomb Squad Units, and other law enforcement officials arrived at the scene and assumed total control of the situation.

CAIR Florida congratulates Masjid Al-Ihsaan's Imam (religious leader), officials, and community members who followed the appropriate protocols. The subject of bomb threats was one of the various important topics addressed in CAIR Florida's Safety and Security Training offered to Masjid Al-Ihsaan on December 15, 2015.

"We're very, very proud of this mosque for taking the necessary actions" said Rasha Mubarak. CAIR Florida recently held security training at the small house of worship. The seminars come at a time of heightened fear, just days after a man vandalized a Titusville mosque with a machete. "Just over the weekend we heard about what happened in Titusville and since November, up until the first of January, there's been about 17 potential hate crimes reported across the country," said Mubarak.

CAIR Florida’s Orlando Regional Coordinator, Rasha Mubarak, kept our community informed. She offered interviews to the major local media outlets during late afternoon and evening during the critical moments of this emergency.

Mosques, Temples, Churches, and other organizations are invited to call CAIR Florida offices to promptly schedule a Safety Training Program. CAIR Florida offices are located in Tampa, Sunrise, and Orlando, however, safety trainings are available state wide.
