Police are continuing to investigate an incident in which they found two copies of the Quran book in a men’s bathroom at the University of Texas at Dallas.
According to the school’s student newspaper, the copies of the Muslim holy book were found in a toilet in the men’s bathroom on March 28, by two UT-Dallas students, that called the police right away upon discovering them.
UT-Dallas Police Chief Larry Zacharias told The Texas Tribune on Thursday that police “don’t have too many leads” at the given moment, but are conducting video reviews with help from university staff.
“It’s not something we want to blast out on campus because we don’t want people to go, ‘Oh, you’re a suspect in the Quran thing,’” Zacharias said. “No one knows who owns the books, so that makes it difficult.”
The president of UT-Dallas’ Muslim Students Association Mohammad Syed, condemned the incident.
“Given the current political climate and how Muslims are portrayed in the media, it makes certain individuals act in this hateful way,” he said.
The Quran was discovered by members of the student government after an evening meeting.
