Texas Mosque ‘Completely Destroyed’ By Fire Hours After Donald Trump Signs Muslim Ban(Photo)

An early-morning fire has
destroyed a Texas mosque,
barely a week after it was
burgled, and a hours after
Trump signed an executive
order restricting migration from Muslim-majority countries
.. A clerk at a convenience store ,
who spoke to local media,
reveal he spotted smoke and
flames billowing from the
Islamic Center of Victoria at
around 2 a.m. and called the fire department.

It took
firefighters nearly four hours to
extinguish the blaze.

Shahid Hashmi, the Islamic
center's president, said; "It's sad to stand there and
watch it collapse down, and the
fire was so huge," "It looks
completely destroyed."

Victoria Fire Marshal Tom
Legler asked for help from the
Texas Fire Marshal's Office and
federal Bureau of Alcohol,
Tobacco, Firearms and
Explosives to determine what caused the blaze.

Hashmi said
authorities have told him it
was too early to speculate.


The center director said; "None whatsoever right now.. We don't have any lead or
information as to what started
the fire and what happened.

So
I'm sure it's going to be a few
days, they told us, before they
can come up with any answers for us." According to Hashmi, someone
had broken into the center on
January 21 and stole some
electronic stuff, including
laptops.
