Guernsey Police hunt 'Islamophobic' leaflet culprits


People in Guernsey woke up yesterday morning to find leaflets stating "Allah had no son" on their car windshields.

Guernsey Police are now investigating and have contacted the Islamic community saying the act will not be tolerated.

Statements are being taken from a number of witnesses and it’s understood that the leafleting took place over a number of streets.

The Islamic community in Guernsey has been offered reassurance by the authorities.

“Any kind of religious intolerance in Guernsey and the rest of the Bailiwick – whether Islamophobia or otherwise – will not be tolerated and all reports shall be fully investigated.”
