Members of the London Muslim Mosque have called police after vandals scrawled an offensive message on the sidewalk outside the building.
It reads, "FOR THE TEMPLE MOUHAMED RAPES KIDS".
Pictures of the graffiti were taken immediately and police were called.
"Right now, in these days, what we want to do is make sure we are protecting the congregation," said Ali Jomaa, chair of the board for the mosque. "Knowing what happened in New Zealand we wanted to make sure that we are taking all the precautions necessary."
Fifty people were killed when a gunman opened fire at two mosques in New Zealand. A 28 year old white supremacist was arrested and charged in the case.
Lately, vandalism and attacks on mosques have been increasing in the West.
