Masjid Nasir Hartlepool

Racial abuse shouted in Hartlepool mosque

Police are hunting two men and a woman who burst into a mosque and shouted racial abuse. The incident happened at the Nasir Mosque on Brougham Terrace, in Hartlepool, at around 7.45pm on Tuesday, February 5.

A Cleveland Police spokeswoman said: “Two men and a woman entered the mosque via the main entrance and began causing a disturbance and shouting during prayer time. They were also racially abusive when asked to leave the premises.”

All are described as young, white and of slim build. The first man was wearing a black woolly hat, a blue and grey tracksuit and black trainers. The second was wearing a black and white knitted hat with plaits down the side, a dark tracksuit top and bottoms with a white stripe down the sides and was carrying a plastic bottle. The girl had long, fair hair and was wearing a cream coat with a fur-trimmed hood.

Anyone with information is asked to contact PC Claire McMahon, of Hartlepool Police, on the non-emergency number 101.

    It really makes me uncomfortable when people start saying who is and isn’t a Muslim. If they follow the 5 Pillars then they are basically Muslim. We are not one’s to say who is or isn’t a Muslim. I read that scholars agree that calling another professed muslim a kafir is the easiest way out of Islam.

    You think that those who shouted the abuse know or care ?
    Or that this is the best forum to discus who is or who is not a muslim ?

    they all sound pretty tacky. Not surprised, the people who attacked jews on the streets in Europe looked pretty tacky too.

    The shame of it 🙁 and in my home town too.
    It does not come as surprise really as Hartlepool has always had a section of which the combination of drink and stupidity leads to petty crime and vandalism .

    This is why mosques should lock their doors until the prayer finishes
