Woshippers at a mosque in Las Vegas, United States found pieces of bacon wrapped around the handles of the mosque’s doors as when they arrived for morning prayers. The incident is being treated as a hate crime and is thought to have been carried out by a man with anti-Muslim sentiments.
It is widely known that pork is forbidden for Muslims so the assailant must have thought this was a sure way to keep the Muslims out of their mosque!
CCTV footage released by the mosque shows the suspect placing bacon on the mosque’s door’s handles
But a Muslim man gave the perfect response to the hate crime, he tweeted:
Oh no! Bacon is Muslim kryptonite. Now no one will ever be able to use that mosque again. You win Islamophobes! https://t.co/gU6hjcVPpc

In light of the event, Murtaza Hussain had an ingenious idea:
Said it before but someone needs to start a rumor that Muslims don't eat donuts so that people will start sending those to the mosque.
