It was reported that over 200 people were present when a truck pulled into the parking lot for the event.
With its digital billboard depicting scenes from the 2008 Mumbai terrorist attacks, the truck made two full loops of the parking lot, stopping several times. A surveillance camera and a witness who followed the truck onto Route 18 North captured the entire incident as it unfolded.
Residents claim the incident was staged to annoy them
The executive director of the New Jersey chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), Selaedin Maksut, said in a statement, “By targeting a Muslim center and deliberately circling its premises repeatedly, the perpetrators expect New Jersey’s Muslim community to answer to, or even feel shame for, an event that occurred entirely independent of them.”
These kinds of threats against Muslims are completely unacceptable,” Maksut emphasized. They are similar to the methods employed against American Muslims following the 9/11 terrorist attacks and may result in an increase in anti-Muslim incidents, as we have seen in the past two decades.
One hundred seventy-five people were killed over the course of four days in 2008 in the Mumbai attacks, which were carried out by a Pakistan-based Islamist terrorist organization.
This past weekend marked 14 years since the attacks.
