Pork thrown through door of Islamic centre in ‘hate attack’
Pork has been thrown through the door of Belfast Islamic Centre in an ‘attempt to stir up tension and division’.
The organisation appealed for members of the community to remain vigilant after Saturday night’s hate attack.
In a statement on Facebook, a spokesman for the mosque said: ‘Thankfully Pork is not Muslim Kryptonite (!) and no-one was harmed, but the message behind the action was one of hate.
‘We know this individual does not represent the majority of people in Northern Ireland and reject this attempt to stir up tension and divisions between Muslims and Non Muslims in Northern Ireland.
‘They will not succeed. Due to a number of incidents recently, we ask members of the community to remain vigilant and report any incidents of harassment to the police either by calling 101 or 999 in an emergency.’
DUP South Belfast MP Emma Little-Pengelly said such attacks achieved nothing and were wrong and entirely misdirected.
