MURFREESBORO, TN (WSMV) -

Police are investigating a vandalism incident at the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro.

A representative for the center said someone spray-painted messages on the building and near the facility's basketball court.

The vandals also reportedly put slices of bacon around the center's door.

Islamic dietary laws prohibit Muslims from eating pork because it is written in the Quran.

The American Muslim Advisory Council has planned an event to show the community's solidarity with the Islamic Center. The public is asked to bring family and friends, along with signs of love and caring for all. The event will kick off at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at the center. Click here for more information.
