After a tragic of terror attack on New Zealand, now Muslims in Britain are also fearing a terrorist attack as five mosques in the central English city of Birmingham have been attacked, with a man wielding a sledgehammer seen smashing windows at two places of worship.
Thugs targeted the Witton Islamic Centre, the Masjid Faizul Islam, the Jam-E-Masjid, Muslim Community Centre Aston and Al-Habib Masjid – all within two miles of each other in Britain’s second city – overnight. Birmingham is home to nearly half a million Pakistanis. West Midlands Police said counter-terrorism officers are investigating attacks on the mosques in four different areas in the north of the city.

The force added the incidents “are being treated as linked”. “At the moment we don’t know the motive for last night’s attacks,” said Chief Constable Dave Thompson in a statement. Mr Thompson added: “Since the tragic events in Christchurch, New Zealand, officers and staff from West Midlands Police have been working closely with our faith partners across the region to offer reassurance and support at mosques, churches and places of prayer.”
