Mosque in Luton vandalised with racist graffiti

 The Socialist Worker reports on another act of vandalism on a mosque, this time in Luton.

“Racist thugs vandalised a Luton mosque during the early hours of Friday morning. They spray painted “EDL” and a swastika – the symbol of Nazi Germany – on the walls, and smashed windows.

“Imam Shahid Ahmed from the Madinah mosque in Luton spoke to Socialist Worker about the attack.

““We locked up the mosque at 11.30pm on Thursday night, everything was fine. When I returned at 4am for morning prayers I found the windows smashed. The words ‘EDL’ were painted on both sides of the mosque and a symbol [swastika] was also painted on one wall.”

“Bedfordshire police attended the scene and the council immediately removed the racist graffiti.”
