Obama Visits Adnan Syed’s Mosque During 'Serial' Case Hearing
President Obama will step inside an American mosque for the first time on Wednesday.
Press secretary Josh Earnest said Obama will visit the mosque to highlight the principles of religious liberty and the important role Muslim American play in society.
Obama will visit the Islamic Society of Baltimore, which is where Adnan Syed worshipped.
Syed is a convicted murderer whose case was examined in the hugely popular Serial podcast last year.
While Obama is visiting the mosque, Syed will be sitting in a Baltimore courtroom a few miles away facing a key legal hearing.
Law professor Doug Colbert from University of Maryland, said the hearing will make-or-break his chance for freedom.
