According to TV2’s report, World Islamic Mission Mosque received an email on last Wednesday: “Before 2013 is over , all mosques in Norway will be burned to the ground . We are a group of men who have planned this for seven years.”
In Friday morning, a sausage banner was hung at a mosque in Fredrikstad with an insulting message against the religious members. Also, a cut pig head was found outside the Norway’s largest mosque in Oslo on Saturday.
After the incidents, Oslo police had several meetings with the Islamic Council of Norway. Police confirmed to TV 2 that they look the issue very seriously.
– This is a result of the attitudes that we have seen for a long time , says the secretary general of the Islamic Council , Mehtab Afsar.
He is now in close contact with the police to continuously assess the situation and security around mosques in the country.
