CHICAGO – August 13, 2012. Governor Pat Quinn today issued a statement regarding recent violent crimes committed against Illinois Muslim centers.
“I am saddened to learn of two recent violent crimes against Illinois Muslims in Morton Grove and Lombard. We should all be able to agree that there is no place in Illinois for hate crime and religious intolerance.
“No matter what faith you may practice, attacks on places of worship are just plain wrong and do not reflect the values of the people of Illinois.”
