Washington sources have stated that he Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) has said they were reaching out to a business owner who has put up a “Muslims Get Out” sign outside his restaurant to invite him to mosque.

It was stated that the hope is that by giving Treats Family Restaurant owner Dan Ruedinger an opportunity to come to a mosque and interact with Muslims, he will learn more about Islam and the local Muslim community, kare11.com has reported on Tuesday.

CAIR-MN Executive Director Jaylani Hussein has said their experience has shown that interaction with ordinary American Muslims and enhanced knowledge of Islam are key factors in the reduction of Islamophobic attitudes and they have invited Ruedinger to visit the mosque in Fairbault and to learn more about Muslims and Islam in Minnesota.

Meanwhile Hussein has also thanked community members of different faiths and backgrounds who demonstrated outside the Lonsdale restaurant and spoke out against the “Muslims Get Out Sign” on social media and it was, however, not known if Ruedinger will accept the invitation.
