[UPDATED] MASSACHUSETTS: Oh, NOES! Burlington mosque vandalized with anti-Muslim ‘hate speech’

Members of the Islamic Center of Burlington were shocked and frightened when they saw the hate letters “USA” spray-painted all over the building as well as on a sign on Lexington street.  


NECN (h/t Mike F)  Burlington Police responded around 1:45 a.m. Sunday. They are looking for three men who pulled up in a white sedan. Surveillance footage shows the suspects pulling up to the front entrance, getting out their car and tagging the building. They then went back to car, came back and did more damage before taking off.

One of the founders of the Islamic Center of Burlington said this is not the first time this has happened to their building. “We have concerns about the safety of the people,” said Minor Gandavia, the center’s president.

Burlington’s police chief says he plans on holding the suspects accountable (death penalty?) for their disgraceful actions. He’s asking the public to come forward with any information that could lead to an arrest. (Don’t hold your breath)

UPDATE: Sadly, two 18-year-old Burlington men have been charged with vandalizing a mosque over the weekend, which police labeled a hate crime.
