MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (OSBORNE) -- On a recent Friday evening the services were packed at the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro.
Attendance is strong at the Mosque in spite of a recent uptick in hate incidents directed at the mid-state’s Muslim community.
Last summer, vandals did extensive damage to the mosque, spray painting obscene message on walls and doors and scattering pork meat around the building.
Days later, there was a similar incident at the apartment of Physician Muhamed Faour. Vandals damaged his car and again left pork meat scattered about.
