YAWN… Reykjavík, Iceland police show little interest in desecration of mosque site

Three pig heads and bloodied pages of the quran were scattered across the plot of land allocated to the Association of Muslims for the building of a mosque.

Hey, free food! What’s the problem?


Professor at the University of Iceland’s law department Björg Thorarensen says the incident could be classified as a hate crime but Benedikt Lund at Reykjavík Metropolitan Police told that it is unlikely that the case will be investigated as they don’t have any evidence. The animal parts and pages of the Koran were discarded by City employees tasked with cleaning up the site after the incident.

According to Benedikt, the police officer on the scene said that there was some paper at the site but didn’t know whether it was related to the issue.

Óskar Bjarnason, who lives in Sweden, told that he was present when the incident took place and that a group of 20 people are behind the act. Óskar claimed that prominent figures in Reykjavík are among its members. He mentioned examples of protests by others in Sweden but said that the action taken in Iceland was less radical.Reykjavík-

Reykjavík City Council formally approved the building site for Iceland’s first mosque in September. The Association of Muslims in Iceland was allocated the plot of land in January. The association is currently run from a building in Reykjavík but this will be the first building built specifically as a mosque in Iceland. The City Council’s decision has raised much discussion in Iceland.






Pig feet dumped in Stockholm mosque

Posted on 22 November 2013. Tags: Stockholm mosque, Sweden muslims

On Monday, police were called to a Stockholm mosque where they found what looked like pig’s feet on the floor. Ulf Lindgren, a spokesperson for the city’s police force said that as Muslims consider pork is unclean, officers had classified the incident as vandalism.

The spokesperson said that although the offending objects looked like part of a pig, investigators were keeping an open mind until the experts had passed their opinion. According to the Local, the vandals broke the windows on the front door of the mosque before tossing the pig’s trotters inside.

Responding to an emergency call, police arrived at the Fittja District a little after 11:00 on Monday. Officers questioned mosque officials and local residents, but they all stated that they had not witnessed the break-in and had no idea who might have done it.

Mr Lindgren did add that as Swedes traditionally ate pig’s trotters during the Christmas festive season it might be hard to find out where the offending objects had come from. Since it was built in 2007, Fittja Mosque has garnered 1,500 members. The mosque found itself at the centre of a controversy in April this year when it staged the first ever public calls to prayer in the country.

The landmark call followed a decision by council officials the previous September which lifted a 1994 ban on prayer calls. Local police allowed the call to go ahead, provided that it lasted no longer than five minutes and was staged between noon and 13:00 on Fridays.





Dead pig found at Cypress mosque

What may be animal intestines also discovered at the facility

Fahad Tasleem, resident Imam of the Islamic Outreach Center in Cypress, with Mustafaa Carroll, center and Ilyas Choudry, board member of ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America), right, take photos of a grisly discovery of pig intestines hanging on the gate in front of the Islamic Outreach Center Wednesday.


The small, black pig lay dead on its side upon the wooden deck, a deep gash on the side of its belly.

That’s what a congregant at the Islamic Outreach Center saw Tuesday evening when he and a handful of other worshippers arrived for nightly prayers. Worshippers also found blood stains near the door of the Harris County mosque.

“It looked like someone was trying to take it inside, but it was locked,” said Ilyas Choudry, who helps run the center.

At the end of a news conference on Wednesday about the incident, mosque officials also discovered what appeared to be animal intestines hanging from the facility’s front gate.

The intestines may have come from the pig, which appeared to be cut open.

Mosque officials believe someone may have left the pig at the Cypress-area center as an act of hate. They called the Harris County Sheriff’s Office, which is investigating.

Sheriff Adrian Garcia said that while the incident has not yet been ruled a hate crime, it will be considered a possibility.

The Islamic faith does not permit Muslims to eat pork, and pigs are occasionally used symbolically against Muslims, according to the Houston chapter of the Council of American Islamic Relations. In 2010, a businessman held Friday night pig races to demonstrate his opposition to a mosque in Katy being built next door to his establishment.

Fahad Tasleem, the imam at the Islamic Outreach Center, said the incident illustrates how important it is to educate the public about Islam.

“We’d rather have you come here and interact with us and get your questions answered,” Tasleem said.

The Islamic Outreach Center, which opened its doors in July, sits on about 10 acres on the corner of Wilks Drive and Mueschke Road in a rural part of northwest Harris County. The center is housed in a double-wide trailer surrounded by a large wooden deck until a larger facility is built.

Tasleem said the center’s location was partly chosen because of the lack of mosques in the area. Tasleem said mosque officials have introduced themselves to the residents in hopes of creating a friendly environment.

“For the most part, there hasn’t been any real negative reaction,” he said.

However, Bobbie Schroeder, who has lived on Wilks Drive for 31 years, said the mosque’s construction has created a nuisance, causing noise and traffic.

“They have no respect for anyone else’s feelings,” she said.

Schroeder, 78, said she doesn’t have anything against the Islamic faith, but wishes the mosque would have been built somewhere else because it depreciates the value of neighboring homes.
