The Rutherford County Sheriff’s Office is investigating overnight vandalism at the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro where someone spray-painted curse words condemning Allah and left bacon at a front door.
ICM spokesman Saleh Sbenaty said the “political climate” is ripe for attacks on the Veals Lane mosque.
“The Muslim community around the United State is experiencing a rise in hate crimes,” Sbenaty said.
In addition to the sheriff’s office, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is involved, and the FBI will be looking into the matter as a hate crime, according to Sbenaty.
