POLICE in the US city of Hawthorne, California, confirmed yesterday that two incidents of vandals spray-painting graffiti on mosques were being considered hate crimes.

The perpetrators also left a device that looked like a hand grenade in the drive near one of the mosques, but it turned out to be a plastic replica.

The word “Jesus” was sprayed in white paint on the fence of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Baitus-Salaam Mosque.

“Jesus is the way” was spray-painted in front of the Islamic centre of Hawthorne.

“This type of behaviour is born out of ignorance and fear and we as members of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community … we respond with peaceful dialogue,” said chapter president Ahsan M Khan.

“It’s through peaceful dialogue that we can hopefully see less of this type of hate crime.”

A mosque in Palm Springs was damaged on Friday in a fire that authorities said was started intentionally.
