Insult to Muslims, the Hate Crime at Cambridge Mosque

pigs head

Far-right extremists in UK have left a severed pigs head outside the Shah Jalal Bangladeshi Community House, triggering alarm amongst the Muslims of Cambridge.

Worshippers found the filthy animal head on the steps of their place of worship on Monday night as they were on their way to salaat.

An emergency meeting was due to be held last night after the incident at the mosque and a worshipper at the mosque, who did not wish to be named, told the local press – the Cambridge News: “It is a terrible insult. There are about 40 families who go to the centre and everyone is highly emotional at the moment. It was left there between 8.15pm and 9pm.”

Muslims leaders in Cambridge are shocked and outraged at this insult to Islam and its followers and Sheikh Abdul Mabud, from the Islamic Academy in Cambridge, said: “I think this is a hate crime. It shows a lack of religious understanding and tolerance. We are all shocked.”

According to the previous insults to Islam, the pig’s head attack could have been triggered after an application to increase the number of worshippers at the mosque and the universal Muslims' objections to burning the Holy Qur’an.

One small good to come from this evil is that it will wake up the Muslims in Cambridge to the dangers of the far right, that they need to keep up Da’wah activities and inform their neighbours about the message of Islam and not allow the right wing extremists to stop good relations between neighbors as commanded by the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH).
