Italy's Muslim football striker donates 60K Euro for mosques

 

Fiorentina’s super striker Muhammad Salah has donated 60 thousand Euros to Florence Muslim community in the team’s headquarters in Tuscany region, offering them a chance to restore the mosques in the Italian western province.
Muhammad Salah, an Egyptian football who moved to Fiorentina from English Chelsea, has become a huge star in the Italian league after scoring 9 goals and making 2 others in 12 matches so far, World Bulletin reported.
The player’s move to prostrate after each goal has also been widely welcomed by the Union of Islamic Communities and Organizations in Italy, saying he presented a true image of Islam away from the terrorist image portrayed by western media.
Italy has a Muslim population of around 1.7 million, including 20,000 reverts, according to the figures released by the national statistics agency.
The decision followed several Islamophobic and racist attacks against Muslim students in the college for wearing hijab. Reacting to increasing attacks targeting veiled Muslim students, the headmaster of an Italian college eastern Italian town Cervignano del Friuli has banned last week hijab in classes, seeing them as “provocativeâ€.
