In a whatsapp message, a representative from the mosque said: “Some terrible news. This morning after fajr (morning prayers) a pig’s nose and blood was left on the Simon’s Town mosque’s door.”
MJC member Imam Fuad Samaai, who lodged a case of crimen injuria with the police, said the pig’s blood and snout were found outside the mosque early Saturday.
He suspects it was placed there overnight.
“It is an insult and shows total disregard and lack of respect to a world religion. It insults our Muslim commu- nity.” He said it degraded the sanctity of a place of worship. He said that the mosque is one of the oldest in South Africa.
