The incident was considered ‘rare and strange’ and it is believed that Qur’ans were taken from the University of Texas in Dallas’ ‘Reflection Room’ in the student union.
The toilet water soaked Qur’ans were not initially reported as a crime because no one claimed them as stolen property, but police are still investigating.
Police are now searching for the person responsible for dumping copies of the Qur’an in campus toilets at the University.
A student found two copies of the Islamic religious text in the men’s restroom at the campus’ student union and immediately reported the episode to campus police.
The books were believed to be dumped in the toilet between 6 and 7 pm. Police have been reviewing security footage to identify the person responsible.
UT Dallas junior and president of the campus’ Muslim Student Association, Mohammad Syed, says he’s shocked by the story. In the past he has known the campus to be a welcoming environment and has nothing but good things to say about it.
Could it be that the Muslim students are not as welcome anymore?
The Qur’ans represent Sharia Law (Islamic Law). What is the big deal if they were in a toilet? If a Bible was found in a toilet, would police be looking for who put it there?
UPDATE: New information came from the surveillance tapes. “We’ve watched video in this timeframe and only two people went into that Reflection Room — both went in empty-handed and both came out empty-handed.”
