A Northern Virginia mosque says it has been vandalized twice in one week, and a national Muslim civil rights group is asking authorities to investigate the vandalism as a bias crime.
Officials at the Manassas Muslim Association said someone vandalized the building’s air conditioning unit Thursday night.
Mosque officials dealt with a similar problem on earlier this week. Monday, worshippers heard a strange noise around 5 a.m. during morning prayer.
When they noticed the mosque beginning to warm up inside, they went outside and found someone had cut through air conditioning pipes.
The nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy group is asking authorities to investigate Monday and last night’s incidents as a bias crime.
