NEW HYDE PARK, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A big portray of Jesus Christ was discovered at an Islamic middle on Lengthy Island, and now authorities are investigating whether or not or not it was left as a part of a hate crime.
The portray, depicting Jesus Christ on a cross, was found by an worker hanging from the fence at Hillside Islamic Middle on Covert Avenue in New Hyde Park.
Right now, investigators think about it to be a “bias incident.”
In a press release from the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the group stated; “Bias might have motivated this incident, however it might function a educating second for the perpetrator and for the group if it results in larger understanding of the love Muslims have for Jesus, peace be upon him.”
Detectives request that anybody with info relating to this crime to contact Nassau County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.
