Swastikas spray painted on Sweden mosque entrance
World Bulletin / News Desk
An investigation has begun after Nazi Swastika symbols were spray painted on to the entrance of a mosque in Sweden’s capital Stockholm on Thursday.
The mosque, which was built in the year 2000, has often faced incidents of hate mail before, but has not faced vandalism of this scale.
It is an indication of growing anti-Muslim sentiment in a country usually known for its tolerance.
On December 22nd, at least 16 thousand people rallied against racism in the Karrtorp suburb of Stockholm carrying banners that read “united against racism”.
The rally which was attended by politicians and artists came a week after another anti-racism protest was attacked by a group of neo-Nazis in the same suburb, resulting in two people being stabbed and 28 others arrested.
