Muslim Leaders Call Amherst Sign "Racist" and "Hateful" | News | Amherst NewsLocal Muslim leaders are angry over a lawn sign next to a new Mosque; some call the sign "racist" and "hateful".
The Jaffarya Center on Transit Road in the Town of Amherst will have its grand opening celebration next weekend, and leaders say the community has welcomed them with open arms. That's why they're so shocked to see the sign, which reads "Bomb Making Next Driveway."
My initial reaction was couldn't believe it," Dr. Khalid Qazi with the Muslim Public Affairs Council said. "It is totally uncalled for."
The sign sits in the front yard of Michael Heick, who claims he placed it there in a desperate attempt to draw attention to his two-year battle with the Mosque and the Town.
