(AP) - Officials at California State University, Sacramento, are investigating an incident involving written hate speech directed at the Muslim community.
The Sacramento Bee reports that CSUS President Robert Nelsen said Wednesday in a statement that the university would not tolerate hateful or racist behavior on campus and those responsible will be sanctioned.
University spokesman Craig Koscho says a message was found near the University Union. He declined to give more details about the message.
Council on American Islamic Relations in Sacramento Director Basim Elkarra says the message was left on a sign-up sheet for the Muslim Student Association.
The Muslim Student Association issued a statement saying they plan to hold educational programs to clarify misconceptions people may have about Muslims, especially during the election season.
