The Islamic School of Rhode Island was hit by vandalism Sunday, the Providence Journal reported.
The vandalism prompted a call for a "hate crime" investigation — which is exactly what one of the spray-painted messages mentioned, reading, "F*** Allah now this is a hate crime."
Other messages using slurs such as "ragheads" and "pigs."
The Council on American-Islamic Relations condemned the graffiti and linked the vandalism to other recent incidents involved American Muslims, including the shooting of three Muslims in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.
"This apparently bias-motivated incident should be investigated as a hate crime, with the strongest possible charges brought against the perpetrators once they are apprehended," said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper in a statement. "The recent spike in anti-Muslim hate rhetoric and bias-motivated attacks on American Muslims and their institutions must be addressed by our nation's leaders."
Police are investigating the vandalism.
