Vandals have defaced a mosque in Nashville, spray-painting "Muslim go home" on the exterior of the building.

The Tennessean quoted Salaad Nur, a board member of the Al-Farooq Mosque, who said the act discovered Wednesday morning was unexpected.

Several crosses were also painted on the mosque and Nur said a hateful message was left at the mosque's youth center, claiming the Islam faith was trying to destroy the United States.
