TWO mosques have been shamelessly vandalised by yobs in Stockton, Durham with vile graffiti.
Sickening pictures of the graffiti on one mosque show “KKK” and “f****tool” scrawled in red on the outside wall of the place of worship. The graffiti on the other mosque is illegible. According to a Twitter account which monitors Teesside and County Durham news, the local Muslim community say they’re scared to walk down the street knowing there is this hatred.
Responding to their Twitter post, one person branded the attack on the mosques as absolutely disgraceful.
They wrote: “Absolutely disgraceful! Vandalism is senseless!”
Cleveland Police have reportedly been informed of the two incidents on the Parkfield Estate in Stockton.
Muslim places of worship have targeted in recent years.
Earlier this year a muezzin, the person who makes the call to prayer, was stabbed in a mosque in London.
And last year in Birmingham windows were smashed at Witton Islamic Centre, Al-Habib Trust and Jamia Masjid Ghausia, all in Aston, Masjid Madrassa Faizul Islam in Perry Barr and Jam-E-Masjid Qiblah Hadhrat Sahib Gulhar Shareef in Erdington.
In 2018 Darren Osborne was jailed for life for the Finsbury Park terrorist attack that killed one man and injured 12 others after he drove his rented van through crowds at a London mosque in 2017.
