Qur'ans found torn, burned outside California Islamic centers

 Washington,Jun 25:-- Authorities in California are investigating possible hate crimes after two local Islamic centers have discovered destroyed remnants of Qur'ans outside of their mosques.


The incidents occurred outside the Masjid Annur Islamic Center in Sacramento and the Islamic Center of Davis on Saturday and Friday respectively, according to the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) of the Sacramento Valley.


The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department said that a sheriff’s deputy was waved down by a citizen Saturday afternoon and was led to a burned Qur'an filled with bacon, hanging by a handcuff from a fence.


In a separate incident on Friday, someone, who was driving by in a car, threw pages torn out of a Qur'an into the Islamic Center of Davis during night prayers.


The incidents happened as the two communities participated in the last days of the holy month of Ramadan.


CAIR-Sacramento Valley Executive Director Basim Elkarra said, “We thank all the officers involved in these investigations for their prompt and professional actions in responding to these troubling incidents.”
