But its owner, Ruhel Islam, is unequivocal about the bigger picture: Justice for George Floyd, the black man who died Monday under the knee of a white cop.
"Let my building burn," Islam said early Friday via a viral post from Gandi Mahal's Facebook account. "Justice needs to be served, put those officers in jail."
Gandhi Mahal's post, which has been shared over 10,000 times, concludes:
"[We] may have felt the flames last night, but our fiery drive to help protect and stand with our community will never die! Peace be with everyone. #JusticeforGeorgeFloyd #BLM."
