UK: Birmingham mosques attacked using sledgehammers

Birmingham [United Kingdom], March 21 (ANI): At least five mosques were reportedly attacked and vandalised on Wednesday night.
Councillor Majid Mahmood, Labour party Councillor for the Bromford and Hodge Hill ward, Birmingham, tweeted confirming that sledgehammers were used to attack the mosques.
Sharing the video portraying broken windows of a mosque, Mahmood tweeted, "This is Albert Road mosque (Jamia Masjid Ghousia) that was attacked overnight in the Aston part of Birmingham. I am here with the trustees and @WMPolice. I understand from locals 5 mosques were attacked overnight with sledgehammers. A disgusting attack on places of worship!!"
In the wake of the recent New Zealand's Christchurch mosque shooting that claimed lives of at least 50 last week, this attack has once again questioned the safety of the community and the increase in Islamophobia across the globe. (ANI)
