Police are investigating a possible hate crime against the Al-Huda Islamic Centre in Sheffield. The building is on Hanover Street.

Muhbeen Hussain, the founder of British Muslim Youth, contacted Tell MAMA about this incident this morning.

British Muslim Youth posted at 4:12am this morning:”Confirmed reports that Al-Huda Islamic Centre in Sheffield has been attacked. It may be a possible hate crime but at the moment, it is unconfirmed.

Sources are suggesting that Quran’s have been decimated and other horrible acts have been committed.”

The group also tweeted: “Al Huda Islamic Centre, Sheffield has been attacked. Qurans decimated. #risinghate”.
Photos were also attached.

Our staff are trying to contact the Islamic Centre to offer support and security advice.

The BBC’s Sheffield and South Yorkshire live blog also picked up the story.

A video from the scene has now appeared online:

We extend our gratitude to Muhbeen Hussain and British Muslim Youth for reporting this incident to Tell MAMA. It’s important to remember that every report matters.
