The country’s largest mosque, which was built in 1971 and has been the target of arson attacks for years, is once again home to a mosque.
The Al-Huda mosque in Durban, South Africa, is a major site of Islamic practice and worship in South Africa.
It was built by former Pakistani army chief Muhammad Yunus in 1971.
But a fire destroyed the mosque in 2005, killing more than 20 people.
Yunus was forced to flee South Africa and died in 2010 in an apparent suicide.
His widow, Zulfikar Ahmed, was sentenced to prison for manslaughter in 2015 for the deaths of three people.
But she escaped the death penalty after a court overturned the verdict.
Now, as South Africa’s government faces the possibility of a reopening of the Durban mosque, the government has decided to take another look at the mosque, reports the BBC.
It said the mosque would be reopened after renovations.
The mosque, one of the largest in the country, was built to house the Jamaat-e-Islami, the country’s biggest Muslim organisation.
It has more than 100,000 worshippers, and is one of two main mosques in the city.
