(WASHINGTON, D.C., 9/16/16) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today called on state and federal law enforcement authorities to investigate a series of possibly bias-motivated incidents targeting a Maryland Muslim family.

CAIR says family members felt compelled to leave their home in the Windsor Mill neighborhood of Baltimore County, Md., following a series of incidents involving unidentified persons who entered the home when it was not occupied and scrawled graffiti, including cryptic threats and a reference to the terror group “ISIS,†on the walls.

Despite notifying the property landlord and police after each incident, and installing a home security system, the incidents continued.

The family is offering a $1,000 reward for information leading to arrest and conviction of the perpetrators.

“We call on state and federal authorities to conduct a swift and thorough investigation of these incidents to determine who is responsible, thereby allowing this family to return home and resume a normal life,†said CAIR Maryland Outreach Manager Dr. Zainab Chaudry.

CAIR is America's largest Muslim civil liberties and advocacy organization. Its mission is to enhance the understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.

La misión de CAIR es mejorar la comprensión del Islam, fomentar el diálogo, proteger las libertades civiles, capacitar a los musulmanes estadounidenses, y construir coaliciones que promuevan la justicia y la comprensión mutua.
