COLUMBUS, OH — The Columbus chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations asked the FBI and state law enforcement to investigate the graffiti at the Ahlul Bayt Society Islamic Center as a hate crime.

Officials at the Ahlul Bayt Center said a white man was seen on surveillance video painting messages on the door of the mosque that included "Allah is a fraud."

“We urge the FBI to add its resources to the investigation of this hate incident and call on local, state and national leaders to repudiate the growing anti-Muslim bigotry in our society that results in such crimes,” said CAIR-Ohio Legal Director Romin Iqbal.
