 The explosion, which shook the mosque took during the Maghreb (evening) prayers was described as a possible hate crime.


FBI found the remnants of a pipe bomb which resulted in a fire leaving a gaping whole in the wall, fortunately no casualties were recorded.  Investigations are currently underway as FBI checked surveillance videos which revealed a potential suspect leaving the premises at the time of the blast.


The attack followed an incident early last month where a man entered the mosque and shouted anti-Islam slogans threatening to come back later. Residents condemned the aggressive action describing it as a morally reprehensible act against the 5000 families of the Muslim population.

Paul Hooker, of the Interfaith Council of Jacksonville, issued a statement on behalf of the organization condemning the incident stressing that it tarnished the good name of the city.
