A national Muslim association is calling for action after it says two of its Toronto mosques were vandalized repeatedly, including a pair of incidents in the lead-up to a major holiday.
The Muslim Association of Canada is asking police and elected officials for help after it says two of its facilities were targeted in five separate incidents over the past two months.
In a statement Thursday, the association says two of the incidents occurred at the same location on the same day this week, just as Muslims were preparing to mark Eid al-Adha.
A spokeswoman for Toronto police says the force is aware of four reports of mischief at the two mosques, dating back to June 1.
Const. Caroline de Kloet says the reports have been investigated and ``none of them are believed to be hate motivated.''
However, she also says one man was arrested for an incident that happened on Wednesday in which a brick was allegedly thrown through the mosque's window.
