Mustafçova Mayor issues a statement on the mosque attack in Ilica
Mayor Delihüseyin made the following statements:
"Honourable brothers and sisters.
Today, around 18:00, we learnt from our beloved former District Director Mr Hasan NAZIR that a person of Bulgarian origin with a French passport entered our mosque at the point we call our hot springs region in Ilıca and threw our holy book, the Holy Qur'an, on the ground, damaged it and damaged the covers inside the mosque.
I immediately informed the police chief in our area to take the necessary precautions. I asked them to intervene. They went to the mosque and arrested the person who threw the Holy Qur'ans on the ground.
We immediately made the necessary consultations with Mustafa TRAMPA, our Mufti of Xanthi.
Our brother Eyüp KÖSE, the President of the Foundation Board, came to Şahin police station to make the necessary criminal complaints.
Both the suspect and the complainant have been taken to the police station in Xanthi for the necessary examination and investigation.
Get well soon to our whole community.
May God protect both us and the whole society from such sick, sick mentality types.
Inshallah we will follow the incident.
It is announced to the public."
