Pork Left on Muslim's NY Doorstep May Be Bias Crime

Pork left at a Muslim woman's door in Staten Island is offensive because the meat is considered impure in Islam — and the incident may qualify as a bias crime, police say.

What a swine!

A hate-filled goon outraged a Muslim woman from Staten Island by leaving a helping of raw pork on her doorstep, police said Thursday.

The 26-year-old woman said she was asleep inside her Mosely Ave. home near Banberger Lane in Eltingville at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday when someone pounded on her front door.

When she answered, she found a package of raw pork on her doorstep, officials said.

Muslims do not eat pork because the Qur’an describes the meat as impure.

The NYPD’s Hate Crimes Task Force is investigating the incident as a possible bias crime.

Whoever left the pork on the woman’s doorstep remained at large Thursday, cops said.
