BRISBANE: School officials have described it as “hate crime” after a bag adorned with a swastika and containing a pig’s head was dumped at the front gate of one of Queensland’s largest Islamic schools.
Staff at the Islamic College of Brisbane discovered the bag and rotting meat early Wednesday morning, hours before more than 1,000 students were to pass through the school’s entrance.
Police responded after being notified, and school authorities provided CCTV footage of the incident, which allegedly showed two men in a Subaru WRX vehicle dropping the items. The car’s number plate was also captured in the video footage.
Acting college chairman Ali Kadri said it was the type of “hate crime” that sprang from the “demonization of [Islamic] schools”.
