Koran in a Toilet: Now an Official Hate Crime

• Views: 2,808

File this one under the “Utterly Outrageous” heading, as New York’s Pace University and the NYPD are apparently going to try to arrest someone for putting a Koran in a toilet.

The headline says it all: Muslim Student Groups Praise Authorities For Handling Of Koran Incidents. You bet they do. (Hat tip: Killgore Trout.)

In the space of a month there have been two separate incidents where a Koran, the Muslim holy book, was found in a Pace University toilet. The most recent was found just last Friday.

“This is no different from placing a burning cross in front of a house or painting a swastika on a locker,” said Aliya Latif of the Muslim-American Lawyers Association.

Representatives of New York Muslim organizations came together Thursday to make sure the incidents aren’t forgotten, even as they praised the way authorities are handling them.

We spoke to [the] NYPD yesterday and they said they are doing everything they could to make sure there will be an arrest. They will work really hard on this,” said Omar T Mohammedi of the American-Islamic Relations Council. [This is almost certainly the Council on American Islamic Relations, and shows you how much care was taken researching the article. —ed.]

The Pace Muslim Students Association, which criticized the University for not being aggressive enough in its handling of the first incident where a library copy of the Koran was found in the library toilet, praised the administration’s actions this time.

“I would say that the university has kind of done a 180 and is definitely working with us in terms of labeling it as a hate crime and then, the sensitivity forums that I spoke about earlier, they’re actually helping us facilitate those,” said Faiza Ali of the Muslim Students Association.

Here is one of many articles and reports on the radical Wahhabist roots of the group to which Pace University is pandering, the Muslim Student Association (sometimes spelled as “Muslim Students Association”): Accuracy In Academia — The Muslim Student Association: Coming In Peace?
