POLICE said yesterday they are treating an arson attack on Edinburgh Central Mosque as a hate crime.
It sustained minor fire damage to the door and a small bush in the garden after an object was thrown at the building, situated in Potterrow, at about 2.10am on Sunday.
The suspect is a white man in his early thirties, with very short hair and wearing a short-sleeved black top with a white emblem on the front with dark trousers.
Police believe he spoke to a group of women in George Square before the incident and are urging them to come forward, as well as anyone who drove past the mosque during the attack.
Chief Inspector Mark Rennie, local area commander, said: “This was a despicable and reckless act which we are treating as a hate crime.”
Detective Inspector John Kavanagh said: “Fortunately, no-one was injured as a result of this incident but the consequences could have been far worse had the fire taken hold and spread.”
Edinburgh and Lothians Regional Equality Council (ELREC) chairman Foysol Choudhury strongly condemned the crime as “an attack against our freedom of religion and expression.”
He said: “Edinburgh cannot tolerate any action that aims to spread hate and division within its society.
“ELREC would like to uphold Police Scotland’s request for everyone who has any information to contact them and wishes to offer support to anyone who feels more insecure after this attack.”
Anyone with information can contact police on 101 or Crimestoppers on 0800 555-111, where information can be given anonymously.
Terrorist attacks in Paris, Belgium ,New Your which are committed by Muslim terrorists ARE NOT HATE CRIME AGAINST INNOCENT PEOPLE ? THEY ARE KILLED FOR BEING CHRISTIANS OR JEWS,for being non muslims.
In the case of ISIS attacks, they are attacks based on the Saudi state version of Islam, to which the overwhelming majority Muslims, in Edinburgh or elsewhere, don’t subscibe.
The most publicized very recent attack, with most people killed, the truck massacre in Nice, was by a ‘Muslim’ who ate pork, drank alcohol, never prayed, did nothing about Ramadan; but who had grave psychological, divorce and financial problems. And about a third of the people that attack in Nice killed were Muslims. Like there were also Muslims killed at Brussels airport. This kinds of terrorism is not specifically against people of any religion, but against the general public.

Another excuse for acts of Islamic terrorism Hiding the truth about Islamic terrorism ,is hiding their heads in the sands, like OSTRICHES. ISLAMIC TERRORISM IS GLOBAL AND ITS REAL.
SAUDI ARABIA BUILD WITH IT’S blood stained money thousands of mosques for the Muslims world wide not for praying but to invade EUROPE AND THE west, to recruit eager Jihadists Muslims to kill the non Muslims for the sake of their ALLAH .Read Chapter 2,3,5, on the Islamic KORAN. .You can make 1000 excuse but the truth ramains strong.
I have blogged about Saudi Arabia and mosques at
When reading the Bible, one finds sentences about exterminating all people, including children, of Amalek.
About stoning people to death supposedly being a correct punishment. About LGBTQ people supposedly deserving the death penalty. Still, one should not judge all Christians living today, many centuries later, for that. Similarly so for Muslims, Jews, Hindus (some Bhagavad Gita sentences might be interpreted as advocating violence), etc. etc.

Hi, you asked me to read some parts of the Koran. Then, it it is only fair to point there are somewhat similar sentences in some other religious books.
Thank you .
