A man was shown on CCTV throwing rocks at a mosque in Cardiff.

The attack on the Rabanniah Islamic Centre on Clare Road occurred on Monday June 6 at around 10.15pm just before late evening prayers.

Nobody was hurt in the incident as it occurred between the Maghrib (sunset) and Isha (night) prayers, although some were shaken up by the experience, with some commenting that they do not feel safe in the mosque any more.

Mufti Hussain, the Imam of the mosque, said: "This attack is not like any other attack you see on the streets, its clear that we have been targeted because of our faith and our values."

Rabanniah Islamic Centre, which is also home to a supplementary Islamic school catering to more than 50 children, has been targeted in the past.

In 2014, thieves stole more than £3,000 from a safe in the mosque.

Dr Abdul Azim Ahmed, secretary general of Muslim Council of Wales said: "This is a sad moment for the Muslim community here in Wales as this incident happened the night before Welsh Government Minsters publish the ‘Anti-Racist Wales Action Plan’ to tackle systemic and institutionalised racism.

"I’m proud that our government is working toward an anti-racist Wales by 2030 but these incidents are a big setback for the Muslim community in feeling safe and welcomed here in Wales."

South Wales Police are investigating the incident and have made reassurance visits to the mosque.
