Pork dripping, raw meat, nappies and dog litter were thrown in Jamia Masjid Sultania mosque car park in Sneinton Dale, Nottingham, on May 18.

The mosque has also received threatening hate letters. Nottinghamshire Police are investigating the incident and members of the mosque staff have been advised to not open any suspicious mail and to report any letters that they may receive.

A spokesman for the mosque told The Muslim News, “We are a peaceful community and complied with lock down restrictions in these difficult times to protect the NHS and community by sacrificing our place of worship during the holy month of Ramadan. Seeing such behaviour is unfortunate and hurtful however we forgive the perpetrators.”

Superintendent Mat Healey of Nottinghamshire Police, said, “We have been made aware of these vile incidents which are all the more unpleasant given that this is such a special time of year for our local Muslim communities who will be celebrating Eid al-Fiṭr this weekend.”

“Nottinghamshire Police takes a zero-tolerance approach to all hate crime and I must be clear that incidents of this nature absolutely will not be tolerated.

“Our officers have been actively investigating these incidents since the time they were first reported and local policing teams across the city have been in regular contact with mosques in their area to offer reassurance to them.
“We have also been maintaining a uniformed presence in the Sneinton area since this came to our attention”

The incidents come as Nottinghamshire Police chief constable thanked the region’s Muslims for the exemplary way they have managed to observe the month of Ramadan while staying within the lockdown guidance.
