An advocacy group for American Muslims is calling for the FBI to investigate an attack on Muslim worshippers outside a mosque in Columbus.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations says the attack occurred Friday night as the worshippers attended prayers marking the month-long fast of Ramadan.
According to a police report, the attackers made derogatory statements and then began throwing rocks, striking one worshipper in the back and smashing two windows on the front of the mosque.
Romin Iqbal, Ohio staff attorney for the council, says the group hopes it wasn’t a bias-related attack, but wants the FBI to investigate with that possibility in mind.
