A testament to what a politician can do for you
This mosque had gone through some pretty unsettling periods in its history with the uncertainty that surrounds its fate. The last kampong houses in the area was long gone even before the new millennium began and yet there is still a core of faithful mosque goers who still visit the mosque.
Many of them would be former kampong dwellers. Others, people living nearby in Sembawang or Yishun. Others, are from beyond drawn to the mosque by its history and perhaps influenced by regular mosque goers.
As of now, with Dr Tony Tan lobbying for the extension of the mosques Occupation Licence, the mosque's fate is pretty safe. It is in fact being gazetted for conservation status. No wonder Dr Tan is highly esteemed here.
