Graffiti vandalism spray-painted on the side of the Islamic Center of Burlington in Burlington, Mass.

BURLINGTON, Mass. — Muslim advocates say a mosque in a Boston suburb of Burlington has been vandalized.

 

The Massachusetts chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations said Sunday that vandals spray-painted "USA" repeatedly on the exterior walls of the Islamic Center of Burlington.

The group says the vandalism was discovered early Sunday and reported to police, who are investigating. They say they've posted photos of the graffiti online.

In a statement, the group suggests the graffiti reflects a growing anti-Islamic sentiment that Muslim are not "real" Americans.

The executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations in Massachusetts says the group will formally ask the FBI's Boston office to also conduct an inquiry. John Robbins also says the mosque was previously spray-painted with "USA" graffiti in 2013.
