A gruesome discovery outside a North Philadelphia mosque has sparked a police and FBI investigation. Nabil Khalil, the manager of the Al Aqsa Islamic Society told police he found the bloody, severed head of a pig outside the mosque around 6 a.m. Monday when he showed up to set up for morning prayer services.
“I don’t know if they want to treat us like pigs or we look like pigs or act like pigs,” he said.
Surveillance video at the building, which is located on 1501 Germantown Avenue, shows a person inside a red pickup truck driving past the mosque and throwing the pig’s head out of the vehicle’s window Sunday night. Police as well as the FBI are investigating the incident and are speaking to witnesses.
“You’re always going to be looking over your shoulder,” Khalil said.
