Another copy of the Islamic holy book has been found in a toilet at a university library in New York City, a civil liberties group said. The discovery of the Quran in a toilet at Pace University's lower Manhattan campus on Friday was the latest in a series of recent acts of vandalism tinged with racial or religious overtones at the school, the New York chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, an Islamic civil liberties group, said Tuesday. "We once again call on Pace University to take concrete measures to help educate the student population about Islamophobic bigotry and its negative impact on ordinary Muslims and on American society," Maryam Sayar Akbar, the group's civil rights director, said in a statement. In September, a copy of the Quran was found in a toilet at Pace, and in October someone scrawled racial slurs on a student's car at the Westchester County satellite campus and on a bathroom wall at the campus in lower Manhattan.
