‘Islam must die’ and swastika sprayed on walls of University of Birmingham and mosque

Vandals sprayed Islamophobic and anti-Semitic graffiti including “Islam must die” and large swastikas on the walls of a university campus and mosque in Birmingham.

The offensive message were sprayed in black paint on the red brick wall of the University of Birmingham, in Edgbaston, student newspaper The Tab Birmingham reported.

Police believe the incident is linked with another incident of Islamophobic graffiti that was daubed on Jalalabad Trust Mosque – less than a mile away from the campus in Selly Oak – as the graffiti appears to be similar, a spokeswoman for West Midlands Police confirmed today.

The graffiti, which has been removed from both sites, is thought to have been sprayed some time between Friday evening and yesterday morning. Police are now investigating the case and reviewing CCTV footage to catch the culprit.

West Midlands Police urged witnesses who saw anyone spraying the words and the symbol associated with the Nazis on the side of the Psychology building to come forward…

  • This must be that wave of horrendous backlash I’ve heard so much about.

    If the British constabulary spent as much resources on Jack the Ripper, as they do now tracking down Islamophobes, he’d be known as Jack Ripped One.

    Not done by an english native speaker; look at the U it’s done more like a Norwegian U and it has the two french accents above it. I call BS.

    The Police want witnesses? May I remind people that CAIR wants you to know that you do NOT have to help the Police fight hate-crimes ( against non -muslims) .

      Good reminder. What’s sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander.

        True, and when Sheema Khan was at the Arar Inquiry and claimed her CAIR booklet was just to remind Muslims of their Rights in canada , I took it that non-muslims also have these rights and Khan will rue that day she handed out these booklets because when Mosques are being bombed in the West Khan will see how nobody is helping the FBI and RCMP find the terrorists.

    The Muslims probably did it themselves.
