STATEMENT FROM RICHARD LOCHHEAD MSP IN RESPONSE TO VANDALISM AT ELGIN MOSQUE

22/05/2019  

In response to the vandalism at Elgin Mosque, Richard Lochhead has issued the following statement:

“I was disgusted and saddened to hear of the vandalism at Elgin Mosque last night just around the corner from my own office.  This is an abhorrent attack on our local Muslim community in this the month of Ramadan and it is more important than ever that we all stand together and speak out against such senseless and racist vandalism.

“I hope the Mosque can take comfort from the fact that the community is rallying round and uniting in condemnation of this mindless act with people volunteering to clean up the graffiti. I urge anyone who knows who may be responsible to contact Police Scotland.”
