Rise in Islamophobic attacks against mosques in Greater Manchester

Islamophobic attacks against mosques in Greater Manchester have risen dramatically post Manchester Arena attack, according to official figures released by Greater Manchester Police. Nine attacks on mosques were reported to police between March and June this year compared with none during the same period in 2016.

Many Muslims living in Greater Manchester have reported to the police and other online organisations a rise in assaults, abuse and attacks on property in the immediate aftermath of the Manchester Arena attack.

    It isn’t a phobia when they’re killing you.

    When I see idiots like those non Muslims holding that sign, I have difficulty suppressing the urge to do violence to them. Disgusting POS the lot of them.

    And they will continue to rise as muslims continue to do their thing and the authorities side with them against the native population. People are going to take things into their own hands more and more as time goes on.

      Yes, if the so-called authorities will not take care of the situation, perhaps the people will chase the damn muzzies out of our countries.

    And how many kids died in these attacks? Especially the “pigs head thrown at a window” attack . . . How many? . . . That’s what I thought.

  • Assuming these incidents are not hoaxes, they will achieve nothing other than giving sympathy for people who don’t deserve it.

      If muslims are so fired up for a little sympathy they can find it like anyone else searching for it, it can be found in a dictionary between shit and syphilis. I ain’t got none.

      Remember, islamic sacred words: “oppression is worse than slaughter” – Qur’an 2:191, “Fight them on until there is no more tumult or oppression” – Qur’an 2:193. So there you have it: treating muslims so they are not allowed to follow Shari’a is deemed oppression and to allow it to continue is worse than slaughtering those who are deemed oppressive.

    I wonder if this is yet another case of Muslims begging for sympathy by attacking their own terror mosques.

    • Watchman

      There’s likely to be an actual increase in the public’s anger towards muslims for an attack driven by a fervent belief in islam. When the imam stands up in front of his congregation and tells them to report every perception of discrimination of anger or hate, you would expect a large increase in reported incidents, regardless if they are religiously based or not.
