Boston’s Muslim community celebrated a long-awaited milestone yesterday with the official unveiling of the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center, a 68,000-square-foot mosque and cultural center in Roxbury.

Nearly 2,000 people gathered to celebrate the ISBCC, which has been in the works for nearly two decades, and which can accommodate more than 3,000 worshipers, according to Bilal Kaleem, executive director of the Muslim American Society of Boston.
