    A Mosque in Czech Republic’s Brno city has been vandalized with derogatory and provocative messages threatening to kill Muslims in the country if they spread Islam. The inscription sprayed on the Mosque in green paint reads ”Don’t spread Islam in the Czech Republic! Otherwise, we’ll kill you.”

    Police on the lookout

    The police has taken the matter seriously and are on the lookout for vandals. Local police spokesman Bohumil Malasek told AFP that the investigation has begun and they’re closely watching the CCTV footage around the Mosque and its nearby surroundings. “We have been investigating the case since Friday afternoon as damage to property for now.”

    The head of Czech Muslim Community calls it a serious threat

    Aftermath of the vandalism, Muslims in Brno got together condemning the attacks on their Mosque and the head of Czech Muslim Communities Centre, Muneeb Hassan Alrawi, said in a statement that the graffiti is a serious and direct threat which should not be taken lightly. Also, this is the only Mosque in the whole city of Brno.

    “We take it seriously as a direct threat, it’s not an anonymous call on the internet. We must also see this in the light of attacks on Mosques in the world and of the oppressive sentiment and atmosphere in the Czech Republic,” he said to CTK news agency.

    Population of Muslims in Czech Republic

    Muslim population in the Czech Republic is minute and an official census data from 2011 shows there are around 3,358 Muslims in the country. However, unofficial estimates suggest there are around 10,000 to 20,000 Muslims residing in the country. Right-wingers claim there are a bigger number of Muslims among them and the government is hiding the findings.
