Tonight, a panel of Boston Unviersity experts will examine the controversy surrounding the proposed Islamic cultural center and mosque near Ground Zero.  According to BU Today, the event is an “effort to dispel what the speakers call Americans’ mistaken beliefs about Islam.”

The Ground Zero Mosque Controversy: What You Need to Know begins at 7 p.m. in room 222 of BU’s College of Arts and Sciences (CAS).

Panelists include Teena Purohit and Kecia Ali, both CAS assistant religion professors, and Cristine Hutchison-Jones (GRS’11), a Ph.D. candidate in religion and society.
