Editorial cartoon posted on mosque door prompts hate crime investigation
by Nicole O'Reilly
Hamilton Downtown Mosque leaders are saying they are the victims of a hate crime after two copies of a cartoon depicting a caveman dropping a Quran into an open fire were taped to the women's prayer entrance.
The cartoons, which include the words "primitive man discovers fire," were found duct-taped to the doors of 96 Wilson St., on Sunday.
The image, an editorial cartoon, was originally published in the Toronto Star in September 2010 as a critique of Florida Pastor Terry Jones' "International Burn a Quran Day."
