The graffiti was discovered Saturday night in the men’s locker room at Transit District 11.
The command, located near Yankee Stadium, covers five subway lines in the Bronx and is run by Deputy Inspector Zaheer Azeez, himself a Muslim, though the targets were two other cops.
“Muslims” was written on one locker — just below the officer’s name on a “Police!! Don’t Move!” sticker, sources said.
“F--k you, Muslim b---h” was scrawled on another locker, also just below the officer’s name on a duplicate of the same sticker, sources said.
A lieutenant tipped to the graffiti then found the other lockers that had been vandalized.
The two Muslim officers did not want to speak about the incident, according to the NYPD Muslim Officers Society.
In a statement, however, society head Adeel Rana said the group was “extremely disappointed” to hear about the incident.
“The NYPD is the greatest and the most diverse police force in the world, responsible for protecting the greatest city on Earth, and this type of behavior will not be tolerated,” the statement said. “We cannot allow this to take place in our workplaces.”
There are about 1,000 Muslim officers in the NYPD.
