New York Mosque Calls Jesus Painting Placed on Property a Criminal Offense

A New York mosque that had an unknown person leave a painting of Jesus on their property called in police to investigate the action as a potential hate crime.

Hillside Islamic Center of New Hyde Park said a painting of a crucified Jesus Christ was left on the property fence early Friday morning. Abdul Aziz Bhuiyan, chairman of the Board of Trustees at the Hillside Islamic Center, told The Christian Post that whoever hung the painting on their property “did not have good intention.”

“He showed disrespect and violated our place of worship,” said Bhuiyan, who noted that this was the first time that something like this had happened at the Islamic Center.
