Two pigs’ heads have been found dumped outside a Muslim school following protests over plans for a mosque on the site.
The animals’ heads were left outside the £1,200-per-year Markazul Uloom School in Blackburn, Lancashire, on Saturday.
The incident follows plans submitted by the school to convert a building on site into a mosque by adding a dome and minarets – a move which has generated an online protest petition with almost 2,000 signatures.
Last week, graffiti reading ‘no mosque’ was daubed on one of the walls of the school.
Religious, political and community leaders, led by the Bishop of Blackburn, today condemned the attack.
