Six teenagers were arrested on Monday for smashing windows and ripping copies of the Quran at the Bahr Academy in the UK’s Newcastle.

The intruders also poured flammable liquid on the school’s floor, BBC reported.

According to Sky News, the police arrested an 18-year-old woman, two 16-year-old boys, two 14-year-old boys and a 14-year-old girl.

Officers were called on Benwell Lane by a neighbor who saw suspicious activity. The police have termed the attack on the Islamic school a hate crime.

“This is a very distressing incident for members of the Bahr Academy, particularly as it is the second break-in this year. Although there is not the same racist graffiti as we saw in the first incident, we are treating this as a hate crime,” neighborhood inspector Alan Davison said.

“We are aware of the impact incidents of this nature can have on the community and I want to be clear that this type of behaviour is completely unacceptable. Our officers have visited the Bahr Academy again today and are working with them to put further measures in place to try and prevent anything like this happening again,” he said.

During the first attack in January, racist graffiti was drawn on the prayer room walls of the school. No arrests were made in the first attack.

    This is a horrendous act of BRITISH TERROR against a religious Institution in Nazi Britain.

    In 1933, Jewish religious institutions were totally destroyed by the German Nazis, which, historically is called, KRISTALL-NACHT (Night of the Broken Glass).

    Now, worse than that is Happening in Nazi Britain at the Hands of the British Nazis.

    All These Terrorist attacks against muslims in Nazi Britain should be called, BRITISH-NACHT, on the parallels of KRISTALL-NACHT in Germany.

    But there is one difference here.

    Jewish Temples, Shops & Businesses were attacked only for ONE DAY in 1933.

    But, In Nazi Britain, Islamic Mosques and Institutions are attacked nearly EVERY DAY.

    So, this proves that GERMAN NAZIS are small criminals and the BRITISH NAZIS are the biggest criminals of the world.
