Press TV, Didsbury
Shock and horror has spread across the Muslim community in Britain after a mosque in Didsbury, Northern England, was the target of an atrocious hate crime. A hooded man, seen here approached Didsbury Mosque at the dead of night on Friday September 10th, attempting to firebomb the building.
The police are hunting the suspect, treating the case as a hate related crime. Didsbury Mosque opened its doors to Press TV, in the hopes of sending a strong message to both government and wider community.
Despite the trauma caused by the incident, Mosque representatives hoped they could help radicalized the perpetrator. Following the attack, the local community rallied to the building to voice their support the Masjid which has provided vital care services to Didsbury during recent Covid lockdowns.
This time, the mosque got off luck. With very little damage caused and no casualties but with Islamophobia growing across the UK, how long can the Muslim community be left so vulnerable by the state before a more serious attack happens?
