German daily: Over 900 anti-Muslim attacks in the country in 2020

Islamophobic attacks have been on the rise, with Germany reporting over 900 attacks against Muslims and Islamic organizations across the country, a German daily wrote Monday.
At least 901 Islamophobic attacks were recorded in Germany in 2020, a 2% rise compared to the previous year in which the interior ministry recorded 884 crimes that would be considered Islamophobic, according to Neuer Osnabrücker Zeitung.
Despite Covid-19 limiting public life, the number of criminal offenses, including vandalizing, writing threats and ripping women’s headscarves off, has risen again.
Germany has experienced a rise in racism and anti-Muslim hatred in recent years, fueled by the propaganda of far-right groups.
The European country is home to 81 million people and hosts the second-largest Muslim population in Western Europe after France.
