NEW DELHI – Attack on a mosque here has gone unnoticed. The incident took place on the night of Sunday in sector 11 of Dwarka, sub city adjacent to the National Capital.

The mosque was said to have been targeted by some rightwing Hindu Vigilantes. It is the same mosque that was attacked late in February this year.

The perpetrators pelted stones from across the road running parallel to the mosque. However, no casualty was reported in the attack.

“Local Muslim residents living in the locality informed about the attack to local police after getting a call from muezzin (caller for prayer),” Karvaan India reported.

The Mosque serves as a prayer house for Muslims living in the locality. “There is a CCTV camera installed on the front side of the mosque but not on the side from where the stones were hurled. We soon informed the police who was prompt in reaching the spot and receiving a copy of our complaint,” said a local.

A complaint letter in Hindi read: “Imam of the Mosque called up residents around 1:15 am to inform them that some people were pelting stones inside the mosque. When locals went there, they saw some broken cement pieces on the floor of the place of worship. However, there was no more damage to the mosque other than that.”

On being questioned about the incident, DCP Dwarka informed Clarion India that a case has been registered against an unknown person and the investigation is still on.
