Islamic Center Defaced with Bacon Slices - CBS News

Islamic Center Defaced with Bacon Slices - CBS News

(AP) Officials are investigating an Islamic center in South Carolina defaced when someone spelled out "PIG CHUMP" in bacon slices.

Florence Police Major Carlos Raines said Tuesday that someone placed the bacon in foot-high letters on a tiled walkway at the Florence Islamic Center between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Sunday.

Islamic dietary restrictions bar Muslims from eating pork.

Mushtaq Hussain is one of the center's founders. He says he's sure whoever brought the bacon to the center was trying to anger those who worship there but that he's not afraid. The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations on Tuesday called on the FBI to investigate. But Hussain says he's confident local police can handle the case.

How can we criticise bullies among children....when adults, act like this !
