Wakefield mosque vandalised with graffiti

Islamophobia Watch alerts us to a local news report on an arrest made in connection with an act of vandalism on a mosque in Wakefield.

From the Wakefield Express:

“Racist yobs scrawled graffiti on the side of a mosque.

“The offensive slogan was daubed on the side of the Markazi Jamia Masjid Mosque, on Grange Street.

“The Central neighbourhood police team (NPT) arrested an 18-year-old man from Darnley this afternoon.

“Officers believe another suspect was also involved in the attack which happened on April 20.”

In 2011, similar vandalism took place in Stockport, Hartlepool, Milton Keynes, Nottingham and Chorley, amongst other locations in the UK.
