Dozens of community members stood guard at a local mosque in Owen Sound, Ont., on Saturday, a day after the building was vandalized for the second time.

The supporters gathered at the mosque after two incidents where suspects allegedly threw food at the place of worship. Owen Sound Police have said they are investigating the vandalism, but do not have information about possible suspects.

“We’re still fearful, but at the same time we’re moved as well,” said Waleed Aslam, the congregation spokesman for Owen Sound Muslim Association, who noted that the effort was neither co-ordinated nor planned by the mosque.

He said he was amazed to see the community so engaged in protecting the mosque after the vandalism.
