MOUNT SINAI - A Suffolk County community gathered last night to protest the building of a Muslim mosque in their neighborhood.

Dozens of people showed up in Mount Sinai worried that Doctor Mohammed Sameen plans to build a mosque on his property.

The people say it is not a religious battle but are worried about major traffic and parking issues.

Dr. Sameen's attorney says the mosque plan is within town code and they hope to finalize their project at a Brookhaven Town planning meeting next week.
