Four mosques in the province — one in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu and three near Quebec City — were the target of vandalism over the weekend.

In St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, a rock was thrown through one of the windows of the Centre Culturel Al-Imane.

Near the Quebec City area, three mosques were targeted with xenophobic messages.

The National Council of Canadian Muslims condemned the attacks.

“While these types of acts are hurtful, Canadian Muslims know they do not represent the views of the vast majority of their fellow citizens. We call on authorities to investigate these incidents as hate crimes so that a clear message is sent that these acts have no place in our communities,” said NCCM executive director Ihsaan Gardee in a written statement.
