Police: Man Wrapping Mosque Door Handle with Bacon ‘Possible Hate Crime’

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) – Police said a man wrapped raw bacon on the door of a local mosque.

Police are investigating the incident captured on video as a possible hate crime since pork or bacon are forbidden in Islam both to eat and touch.

The surveillance video captured by Masjid Tawheed mosque shows a man placing the raw bacon onto the mosque’s doors and door handles.

One of the mosque’s founding members said fellow members are concerned about the crime and are calling it a “deliberate attack” on their religion.

“There are still people out there who love to hate, unfortunately, so this was one of the sad incidents and it’s unfortunate,” said Rokai Yusufzai.
