Another Night of Vandalism at Local Mosque

Owen Sound | by Cody Misner  

Congregation members discovered their mosque covered in eggs and mustard this morning

Another night of vandalism at the Owen Sound Muslim Association.

When congregation members arrived for pray Saturday morning they found the building covered in eggs and mustard for the second day in a row.

Waleed Aslam works for Grey County and is a congregation member with the Muslim association, he says there needs to be action taken.

"These actions need to be shunned at every level," Waleed states during an interview. "I have members of the community asking us what if something like Christchurch New Zealand happens? How do we bring our families in and know they are safe?"

Waleeds Aslam's son can be seen cleaning egg and mustard off of the mosque after last nights vandalism.

 

These acts of vandalism coincide with an upsurge of alleged white supremacy stickers being posted on buildings throughout Owen Sound.

An Acting Sergeant from the Owen Sound Police states that it is too early in the investigation to draw a clear connection between the two incidents, but police are investigating both the vandalism and the reports of Neo-Nazi paraphernalia in the city.
