Designated terrorist group CAIR (Council of American-Islamic Relations) New York chapter claims it has received a letter allegedly threatening Muslims with “extermination, torture and rape.”
AM-NY According to the organization, the letter appears to have originated in the United Kingdom and is similar to threats against the mosque Masjid Manhattan. Police say there is a formal complaint on file for aggravated harassment in connection with the letter.
The New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations said on Wednesday the group received a hateful letter that threatened to exterminate Muslims and torture children, among other graphic threats. The letter, which was addressed “Dear Muslim,” said the person was on their way to a mosque to “carry out an ‘extermination.’”

CAIR-NY said the NYPD was investigating the letter as a possible hate crime. A representative for the NYPD did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
