A large green and white painting of Jesus Christ hanging on the cross was left outside the Hillside Islamic Centre in Long Island, New York on Friday.

The Nassau County Police Department is now investigating the incident as a “hate crime”, reported Daily Mail.

“A worker there had found this large painting of Christ on a cross on the property,” reported an anchor for NBC 4. “The anti-Muslim message was found hanging from a fence, deemed to be so obviously because it was a mosque.”

The worker then alerted the police who arrived at the mosque around 5:45 pm. “Nassau County police said they were investigating the incident as a possible hate crime,” said the reporter. The “anti-Muslim message”, as the NBC 4 anchor labeleld it, was a green and white painting of Jesus’ silhouette hanging on the cross, reported CNS New York.

  1. Just take it easy. According to Islamic teachings, Jesus Christ a.s. was a great prophet of God. If some one puts his portrait on Islamic center should not make Muslims uneasy. Just take it and hand it over to some nearby Church with love and respect. Matter will be resolved amicably.

  2. Yes, we would appeal to the police not to treat this as a ‘Hate Crime’. It is a nice gift, thanks a lot. Yes, we are not in favor of making pictures of our prophets (of which Jesus is one). May be we can sell this nice gift and donate the income to the homeless of the town?
