SARASOTA –Profane expletives against Islam, spray-painted multiple times in red across Hasib Sejfovic’s house on a quiet Sarasota street, shock people who drive by.

When people see the words, and the burned shell of the Sejfovic home on Avila Avenue, just south of University Parkway, they slow their cars to stare.

“This is on the severe end of the hate crimes that have occurred in our state so far,” Ahmed Bedier, executive director of the Tampa Council on American-Islamic Relations, said as he toured the site Friday.
