The incident in the Warsaw mosque
We are sorry to hear about the desecration of the mosque in Warsaw, which occurred as a result of throwing pig heads into the temple. We believe that all religions should be respected, and their right to prayer and following their traditions undisturbed. We strongly condemn such acts of hatred, regardless of what religion they are aimed at.
