(MINNEAPOLIS, MN, 6/12/2016) - The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) tonight called for an investigation of a hate message left at a mosque in that state as a possible bias-motivated crime.
The message, left at the door of the Dawah Mosque in St. Paul, Minn., contained a slur against Islam's Prophet Muhammad and the statement, "F**k Islam."
"All Americans must be able to practice their faith and worship as they choose without fear of harassment or intimidation," said CAIR-MN Executive Director Jaylani Hussein. "We urge state and federal law enforcement authorities to investigate this incident as a possible hate crime."
