‘No Muslim Parking’ signs offend community
HOUSTON (KPRC) – Signs that read “NO MUSLIM in Westview Shopping Center” were posted around the Houston Texas strip mall this week. Westview Shopping Center sits across the street from El Farouq Mosque.
Workers at the shopping center said the spots are reserved for shopper, but added they did not know who posted the signs.
The mosque has been crowded recently due to the completion of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
“I feel sorry for the person who wrote it,” worshiper Ahmed Hassan said. “This is what comes to mind because obviously he has a lot of hate.”
The shopping center’s owner said he will be checking the property to make sure that no more offending signs appear, but added he will also call a tow company to take away any cars that shouldn’t be parked in the lot.
