Swedish government funds Malmö mosque repair

The Islamic Centre in Malmö is to receive three million kronor in government funding for rebuilding and repairing damage caused in the latest attack on the mosque.

The government said that the donation was based on the fact that the Islamic Centre is important and contributes to creating the image of Islam in Sweden.

“The Islamic Centre is a significant player in integration work and its work, religious, social and cultural, reaches many people in southern Sweden,” said Lena Hallengren, minister with responsibility for religious issues.
