A mosque in Stockholm was vandalised with racist words and symbols on Thursday, according to mosque officials.

In a statement, the mosque management said a big swastika symbol was spray painted at the mosque’s door.

The management strongly condemned the incident, saying the mosque had been facing such racist attacks for years.

"Our mosque members and our community are extremely disturbed by such attacks. Unfortunately, despite many racist attacks, the government could not do anything against Islamophobia and hate speech," it said.

According to the Swedish state television SVT, 22 racist attacks were registered on the Stockholm mosque in 2017 while another 23 attacks were registered since the beginning of 2018.
