Anti-Muslim graffiti sprayed on Bothell school

The Columbian

BOTHELL — Authorities believe the same person is likely responsible for the hate graffiti spray painted on a Hindu temple and a junior high school in Bothell.

A swastika and the words “get out” were found Sunday on the outside wall of the Hindu Temple and Cultural Center.

KING reports swastikas and the words “Muslims get out” in red paint were later found on the wall at Skyview Junior High School, a few blocks from the Hindu temple.

Bothell police and the Snohomish County sheriff’s office is investigating.

The Northshore School District released a statement condemning the vandalism and saying the district values diversity.
