CAIR Calls for Hate Crime Probe of Kentucky Mosque Vandalism

WASHINGTON - The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today called on state and federal law enforcement authorities to investigate vandalism targeting a Kentucky mosque as a possible hate crime.

On Friday, when worshipers left congregational prayers as the Islamic Center of Owensboro in Owensboro, Ky., they found the mosque’s sign smeared with red markings. Mosque officials believe the vandalism was motivated by bias.
