It was not an accident that caused the $100,000 (£65,000) worth of damage, Houston Fire Department investigators said. Authorities said the incident could be deemed a hate crime.As well as a flood of supportive messages and donations, some people believed that the centre deserved a few taunts and put-downs too.

On the centre’s Facebook page, one user going by the name Oso Osorio wrote: “I can donate some bacon sandwiches and a bible if you all want!”But instead of showing any kind of hostility or anger, the imam’s 25-year-old son Ahsan Zahid replied:

“We would gladly take your donation. Knowledge is something we can never have enough of. And we may feed the homeless in our area with the sansandwiches. You are such a thoughtful human being!”.
