MAN CHARGED OVER MOSQUE DAMAGE IN TONNA
Islamophobia in wales
Taken from BBC Wales:
“A 21-year-old man is due to appear in court on Saturday after the windows of a south Wales mosque were smashed and two people were assaulted.
Police were called to Tonna, Neath, in the early hours of Friday morning.
South Wales Police said a number of windows were smashed and a woman and a man assaulted.
A local man will appear at Swansea Magistrates’ Court charged with racially aggravated assault and criminal damage.”
Is Islamophobia becoming worse due to the mainstream media’s portrayal of Muslims as Terrorists, Jihadists or just plain crazy?
No doubt there are a minority of Muslims who fall under that category, but that is not representative of MOST Muslims, just SOME. I live in a mainly Asian area of Cardiff and to be fair I have never had any problems here. They are polite, respectful and care a lot about their community.
Don’t judge a whole section of society based on a religion you may not agree with. They are no different from us. We are all human.
