The International Business Times reports on a mosque in Sutton, South London, which was vandalised following the London Bridge terror attacks last Saturday.
Images posted on Twitter showed the wall of Sutton Islamic Centre daubed with the message “TERRORIZE YOUR OWN COUNTRY” in black paint. The canopy above the shutters was also vandalised with the message “GO AWAY”.
The mosque’s imam revealed that the offending graffiti had now been removed.
A spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said, “Police in Sutton have completed a report for racially aggravated criminal damage after a mosque in Oakhill Road was daubed with Islamophobic graffiti on 4 June.
“No arrests have been made. Reassurance patrols are taking place throughout the borough.”
Anyone with information on the attack at Sutton Islamic Centre should contact police on 101. Alternatively members of the public can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
