Attack on City Central mosque, Stoke-on-Trent

Stoke-on-Trent was one of the key battlegrounds for the British National Party last election, and has also been a focal point for the English Defence League.

Modernity has disturbing news about an attack on City Central mosque in Stoke-on-Trent. Police were called early on Friday morning when a gas pipe was discovered to have been diverted into the mosque and lit. They have arrested four teenagers and are treating the incident as a racist attack on a religious building.

There’s no point the British National Party acting shocked about this and trying to dissociate themselves from this. They continue to lay the foundations for violence by insisting that some people belong in this country because they are ‘indigenous’, and those who are not should be given the signal to leave. That is not a peaceful strategy that can be pursued by peaceful means.

    I wonder what, if formally charged, these teenagers will be charged with; attempted murder? They could have caused a major gas explosion and the death toll was potentially huge.

    It will be interesting to see if they are the ‘fall guys’ for a group which maybe put them up to it.
    They obviously didn’t take much persuasion, if this is the case.
    Very sad and a potentially tragic precursor.
