Pigs head attack is an “Attack on society”
Leipzig – Stunned horror after the sickening bloody attack on the proposed construction site of the mosque in Leipzig/Gohlis!
On the night to Friday strangers set up five impaled pigs heads and covered the area with blood of the animals.
The Chairman of the Central Council of Muslims in Germany, Aiman A. Mazyek (44), called the incident a “cowardly attack on the whole German society.” “Every attack on a house of worship, regardless of religion, is an attack on democracy,” Mazyek said who is currently a guest of honour at the SPD party congress in Leipzig.
The Central Council of Muslims harshly condemned the disgusting incident.
Mazyek: “A small but dangerous group is apparently testing the reactions of the people in order to find out whether they agree.”
His appeal to the citizens of Leipzig: “Resist the beginnings!”
Such attacks are not unknown to the Central Council. According to Mazyek, only two months ago pig blood was tilted at the entrance of a mosque in Mainz: “Occasionally, pigs heads or ears are placed in front of mosques.”
However, such attacks have no influence on the construction of an Islamic house of worship: “We Muslims must not eat pork though. The building site, however, is not desecrated by the animal blood. It simply has to be cleaned. ”
The Central-chief advises The Ahmadiyya community, which wants to build the first mosque with minarets in central Germany, to remain calm: “It is important that the community continues promoting the project peacefully and hand in hand with all democratic forces in the country, in order to achieve the goals. ”
The community can count on the support of Leipzig’s mayor. Burkhard Jung (55/SPD) declared this afternoon: “The city of Leipzig is shocked by this disgusting attack. Such a crime that is beyond my imagination and which shakes the foundations of interreligious coexistence is unacceptable. ”
The mayor continues: “I condemn this cowardly act in strongest terms, and I am committed to ensuring that the perpetrators are brought to justice. In the name of the city I ask the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat community to apologize the incident.”
The state security has started the investigation. Leipzig’s police chief Bernd Merbitz to BILD.de: “Leipzig is a very cosmopolitan city. I am looking for an objective dialogue with residents in Gohlis, but I abhor and condemn this kind of discrimination. The police will do everything possible to convict those responsible for this heinous act as soon as possible. “
