Police in Sweden are investigating a mosque attack by yet unknown assailants in what is suspected as a racist and Islamophobic attack.
Footage from security cameras are being examined to establish the possible cause of the attack as police move in to probe the matter.
This follows vandalism of a mosque inside Molndal Hospital in Gothenburg, western Sweden where the attackers desecrated the Quran and spilled soft drinks on the shelfs and carpets of the mosque’s prayer room.
The mosque association confirmed the development and iommediately condemned the attack saying it had offended and hurt Muslims.
The prayer room that was attacked is used by Muslims receiving medical treatment at the hospital to receive psychological support and pray.
“The fact that the perpetrators damaged a room where patients receive psychological support shows how much hatred these people have,” the statement said.
