On May 27, 2003 The Star Press reported that "police are keeping a watchful eye on a local mosque after a recent incident of vandalism, but they aren't prepared to call it a hate crime... Police investigated a report this week that signs bearing the name and address of the Muncie Islamic Center had been torn down... 'With the current atmosphere, and this being the Islamic Center, we wanted to document it,' said Deputy Chief James Peters... City police were investigating the incident as criminal mischief... Members of the Muncie Islamic Center are concerned, however... 'Finally the craziness is hitting home,' Faiz Rahman told The Star Press."
