🇦🇺 ISLAMOPHOBIA WATCH
- Police arrested woman after placing pig’s head and heart at entry of mosque in Australia.
Chairperson of Gold Coast Mosque, Hussin Goss, told SBS News he was “shocked” to find the pig’s head, painted green, in a plastic bag at the second entry of the mosque at around 10.45 am.
The bag with animal remains was placed on a Friday, the holiest day of the week for Muslims, and just a day before the National Mosque Open Day, which is held annually on 29 October. The day is aimed at inviting non-Muslims to mosques to learn more about Islam.

⚖️ WRONGLY CONVICTED OF MURDER
- New York City has agreed to pay at least $26 million dollars to men wrongly convicted for murder of Malcolm X.
The two men, Muhammad A. Aziz and Khalil Islam, each spent more than 20 years in prison after their hasty arrests and a trial that relied on questionable evidence in one of the most notorious murders of the civil rights era.
The throwing out of the men’s convictions came after a 22-month investigation by the Manhattan district attorney’s office, then led by Cyrus R. Vance Jr., and the men’s lawyers, which found that prosecutors, the FBI and the New York Police Department had withheld key evidence that probably would have led to acquittals had it been presented to a jury.
