Only in America (on Dawoodi Bohra chief Mufaddal Saifuddin's visit)

Normally when a special church celebration occurs in the United States, all sorts of festivities are going on.

But what if the celebration occurs at a mosque?

And what if the special guest, Dawoodi Bohra chief Mufaddal Saifuddin, is from India?

In a case like that, you have an interesting mixture of cultures, as recorded by the Daily Bulletin's Grace Wong:

Hundreds of people crammed inside the mosque Thursday night, many of them pulling out their smartphones to snap a picture while a man sang “America the Beautiful” in Lisaanal Dawati, a mixture of Arabic and Gujarati, an Indian language.
