ISLAMOPHOBIC ATTACK ON IBRAHIM MOSQUE IN AUSTRALIA

 

Perth mosque Imam said “they have had to consider installing electric fences around the property to protect attacks from anti- Muslim terrorists”. In the last months the Masjid Ibrahim in Southern River has been the target of an attempted firebombing, damage and offensive graffiti and pigs' heads have even been dumped on a driveway. This is also an open challenge to Australian Law enforcement agencies and shows poor security provided to Aussie Muslims. Recently vandals painted the letters KKK - shows the Ku Klux Klan - on many of the mosque's walls and doors. Talha Patel, Mosque representative said it was the 12th time that an incident had been reported to police in just over 12 months, yet no one had been arrested or charged. This is Islamophobia happening in Australia. Talha Patel said "We've even had people posting on Facebook about blowing this place up, but when we report it to the police, nothing seems to happen." Neo-nazi slogans and symbols, and the logos of other extremist groups, were also regularly daubed on the walls or in the carparks. The attacks took a more sinister turn in late December when Molotov cocktails were hurled at the building. Mr Patel said the mosque hired security guards to work at night and installed security fence whenever news broke of a terror-related incident such as the Sydney siege or the Paris attacks. "It is sad that it has come to this, but we feel we have no choice”..
