MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minnesota’s chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MN) called on police Sunday to investigate vandalism of a mosque in Maplewood as a hate crime.

“Given the nature of the vandalism and the empowerment of Islamophobia nationwide by some of our nation’s top officials, we urge law enforcement authorities to treat this vandalism as a possible hate crime,” CAIR-MN Executive Director Jaylani Hussein said.
