“Fuck Islam” and “Islam out of DK” sprayed on school walls
Mina Hindholm Efterskole – Denmark’s first Muslim boarding school, which is located near Fuglebjerg in southern Zealand – was on Wednesday night vandalised with anti-Islam graffiti.
The walls of the school were sprayed with hate messages such as “Fuck Islam” and “Islam out of DK”, while several windows were painted with targets.
The school staff were shocked and shaken, and the Danish Islamic Community (DIT) has called on Danish politicians to distance themselves from Islamophobia.

Condemn racist hate crimes
“This is the most uncomfortable thing I have experienced,” Ahmet Deniz, the school’s headteacher, told sn.dk.
“When a Muslim boarding school is openly harassed as grossly as in this case, politicians should distance themselves from it and condemn racist hate crimes of any kind,” stated DIT.
Local police said they were treated the vandalism as a serious case.
“We don’t know if it was just a boyish prank, but we would rather not have this developed into something extremist,” Peter Haslund, a police officer from Næstved Police, told DR.
