MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Council on American-Islamic Relations is calling for an investigation after an alleged hate message was left on a St. Paul mosque.

The incident was reported at the Da’wah Mosque in the city’s Frogtown neighborhood, located on University Avenue near Dale.

CAIR reported the message left at the mosque contained a slur against Muhammad.

The organization’s executive director for the Minnesota branch, Jaylani Hussein, said all Americans should be allowed to practice their freedom without fear of harassment.

The incident comes just as a Lauderdale man is appearing in court on charges he shot at a group of five men on their way to Ramadan prayers last month.
