NEW JERSEY: Muslim woman, Azra Baig, won re-election to the South Brunswick Board of Education, but CAIR-New Jersey is demanding that state and federal law enforcement authorities investigate hate graffiti left on the campaign lawn signs for Baig.
Facebook-CAIRCampaign lawn signs positioned in the vicinity of South Brunswick High School were defaced with phrases such as “Rag Head”, “ISIS”, and “ISIS sympathizer.” Six different lawn signs were defaced between September 26 and October 21. South Brunswick Police have been conducting an investigation, but no arrests have been made.
“This kind of hate speech serves to reinforce negative stereotypes and casts a shadow of suspicion and doubt over all Muslims,” said CAIR-NJ Executive Director James Sues. “We urge state and federal law enforcement authorities to investigate this incident as a possible hate crime.”
