Det Mosaiske Troessamfund
Jewish Society in Denmark / Mosaic Religious Community is strongly opposed to the vandalism at the Muslim Cemetery in Brondby. Here, more than 50 graves were desecrated and destroyed by unknown perpetrator on the night of 6 June. The Jewish community expresses its sympathy with the families affected by the very coarse vandalism.
Dan Rosenberg Asmussen, President of the Jewish Society / Mosaic Religious Community, said:
'As a religious minority, we have an obligation to speak out against these atrocities and calls on the police and judiciary to focus on efforts to combat hate crimes against minorities, among others, also against the Muslim and Jewish communities. '
The Jewish Society also expresses concern at the tendency to stigma when it comes to religious minorities.
'We all have a responsibility to speak out against hatred, fear and prejudice, 'said Dan Rosenberg Asmussen.
