Attackers in Central German city of Kassel threw rocks at a mosque while attacked another mosque in northwest Bremen by destroying about 50 Qurans, the holy book of Islam. The Central Mosque in Kassel is operated by the Turkish Islamic Union for Religious Affairs and it was attacked by some unidentified suspects.
The Chairman of Kassel Central Mosque foundation, Seyfettin Eryoruk, said that the mosque was attacked with rocks when no one was there at the building. He said that the windows were destroyed in the attack.
The Consul General of Turkey in Frankfurt, Burak Kararti, criticized the attack and also shared a statement on his social media platform demanding the security forces to find out the attackers. The Prosecutor’s office in Kassel launched an investigation following the attack. The Central Mosque was previously attacked by PKK sympathizers, and the people involved behind the attack were not arrested.
Another mosque known as the Rahman Mosque in Germany’s Bremen was damaged by the attackers. The attackers damaged about 50 Qurans, that is the holy book of the Muslims and some of the holy books were even thrown into the toilet.
The Muslims residing in the city expressed sadness towards the anti-Muslim attack in the social media platform and also demanded the respective authorities to take action against those who were guilty.
Anti-Muslim incidents keep happening in Germany, fueled by the propaganda from the far-right parties over the increased fears of refugee crisis and increased terrorism. Last month a Muslim teenage boy residing in Bremen was stabbed by an attacker. The police said that the attacker who stabbed the Muslim boy arrested. The victim, fortunately, survived the attack with non-life threatening injuries in his neck. He is receiving the needed treatment at a hospital.
