Vandals target Muslim-owned grocery story
by Carla Hinton
Vandals recently targeted a Muslim-owned grocery store with anti-Muslim sentiments and derogatory slurs aimed at a prominent metro Muslim leader and several Muslim organizations.
Saad Mohammed, director of Islamic news and information for the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, said OK Halal Meat & Grocery store at 3620 NW 39th, was vandalized on Thursday. He said the store is owned by a Muslim and is adjacent to the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City's mosque at 3815 St. Clair.
Mohammed said vandals used orange paint to write crude remarks, at least one of which referred to him by name, along with the acronym for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society. Mohammed is chairman of the board for CAIR-Oklahoma.
