Hate graffiti, Islam We have had the following reported in this morning. The threatening and highly inflammatory graffiti seems to have appeared on a campus site of the University of Birmingham. The statements are similar to previous statements that were reported to us and which we picked up on and actioned.

These statements have caused some fear within Muslim students on campus, as well as to Jewish students, particularly when a Swastika had previously been daubed onto the wall of a student hall.

We would urge strong and robust statements from the University of Birmingham to sending out a message that such bigotry has no place on campus and that all will be done to try and find the perpetrator/s. We would also call on the University to meet with the local Islamic Society for students to talk through their concerns and any fears.
