Flowers have been placed at the Al Fourqaan mosque after calls on social media to show solidarity with Muslims and protest against anti-Islam organisation Pegida.
A Facebook post invitation encouraged locals to place the flowers following Pegida’s announcement of a planned demonstration on Monday 6 May, the beginning of Ramadan.
“Let us support the mosque visitors together. Take a pretty flower or some chalk as a show of support for our Muslim fellow citizen”, the invitation says.
The ‘flower protest’ is scheduled for Sunday 5 May from 7:30pm to 8:30pm, the day before Pegida’s demonstration.
