Sinn Féin MLA Máirtín Ó Muilleoir has condemned a a "hate incident" which saw pork put through the letterbox of Belfast Islamic Centre in South Belfast. 

Máirtín Ó Muilleoir said:

“This attack is a disgrace and I condemn it in the strongest possible way. 

"There can be no place for racism our any other forms of discrimination in our society. 

"Those who carried out this attack have nothing to offer the community.

"At a time when members of the Islamic community of South Belfast are displaying the true Festive spirit by putting on a free dinner tomorrow for those alone at Christmas, the racists behind this incident are displaying only ignorance and hate.

"Those who have recently been ramping up racist invective against Muslims should hang their heads in shame.

"I would urge anyone with information on this attack to bring it forward to the PSNI to ensure those responsible can be brought to justice."
