Windows of a Mosque Destroyed in Mississauga, Spewing Hate Crime

The police are currently conducting an investigation of a suspected hate crime that occurred on Sunday night in Mississauga. The incident involved an individual who maliciously threw two rocks through the window of a local mosque. This incident is especially alarming as it happened on the eve of the anniversary of a tragic mosque attack in Quebec City, where six innocent lives were lost. The authorities are actively working to collect evidence and to determine the identity of the person responsible for this act of vandalism and potential hate crime.
The incident occurred sometime between 9 p.m. and midnight, at an Islamic Centre in the city, according to the Peel Regional Police.

The surveillance footage has shown an individual walking towards the site, throwing rocks at the windows, and then taking off running," according to a Thursday news release from the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM). Religious institutions and the worshippers of those need crucial protection and it has become extremely important to adopt drastic security measures to help serve the commitment to protecting the group.



Law enforcement officials reported that an individual had deliberately thrown two rocks, causing damage to the window of a mosque located in Mississauga on Sunday. The incident has transpired on the eve of the anniversary of a fatal mosque attack in Quebec City back in 2017, which resulted in the loss of six innocent lives.



The incident is currently under investigation as a hate crime, which emphasizes the seriousness of the situation. Mosque officials have been in contact with the police, who have provided assurance that no injuries occurred as a result of this incident.


Additionally, this appalling act has raised concerns among rights advocates, who view it as a troubling manifestation of the growing issue of Islamophobia within the country, and around the world.

This attack in Mississauga, Ontario, has been met with strong condemnation from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who expressed his disapproval - “I condemn it in the strongest terms possible”. “Islamophobia has no place in any of our communities”, said Trudeau.



In November, the city of Toronto experienced a disturbing rise in hate crimes that specifically targeted the Jewish and Muslim communities. Canadian authorities have reported a significant increase in incidents of antisemitism and Islamophobia, which have been directly attributed to the ongoing conflict in Gaza.


This concerning surge in hate crimes has inflicted fear among human rights advocates, who have noticed a worldwide pattern of growing hostility towards these religious groups since the 7th of October. This date signifies the start of the conflict between Israel and Hamas, with Israeli sources estimating a tragic loss of around 1,200 lives.
