Rock thrown through Nashua mosque’s window

Worshippers at a mosque where a rock was thrown through a window on the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terror attacks believe they saw three kids walking from the building afterward, police said Monday.

Twenty minutes before the rock was thrown at the Islamic Society of Greater Nashua on Sunday night, police received a report of three kids throwing rocks at a city park sign nearby. Police are investigating who threw the rock or rocks.

The Massachusetts chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations called on state and federal law enforcement authorities to investigate the rock-throwing as a possible hate crime. It happened on the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks and on one of the holidays on the Muslim calendar, Eid al-Adha.

The New Hampshire mosque is located in a former mill building. The society started the mosque there in April and has held open houses since then.
