(MINNEAPOLIS, MN, 6/28/2019) – The Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic relations (CAIR-MN) today called on law enforcement authorities to investigate a possible bias motive for an intrusion into a St. Cloud, Minn., mosque by a man with a dog.
CAIR-MN said the white male entered the Central Minnesota Islamic Center yesterday evening with a large dog. The man wandered in the mosque and was seen by worshipers as he left. When leaving the mosque, the man pulled hair from the dog and threw it on the floor. [NOTE: Anti-Muslim bigots often believe that taking a dog into a mosque is a way to desecrate the house of worship because of the false notion that Muslims hate dogs.]
The intrusion was captured on video surveillance. Local police are investigating the incident.
