[Excerpts]

The Ahmadiyya Muslim mosque which was damaged in a stoning incident during Ramadan prayers earlier this week is hosting an open day at the Masjid Maryam in Ballybrit on Saturday from 3pm to 6pm.

Ahmadiyya Muslim Association Ireland president Dr M Anwar Malik said that Muslims and non-Muslims are invited to the event which would “offer people a better understanding of Islam and the chance to ask questions about Islam”.

“In the current ... climate, building bridges rather than walls among communities is more important than ever [and] needed,” the cleric said in a statement.

Leaders of five Christian churches in Galway have condemned Monday’s attack , where double-glazed window glass windows were broken during evening prayers.

Gardaí have examined CCTV footage, but, so far, they are regarding it as as criminal damage, and not politically or racially-motivated. Gardaí at Mill Street station have appealed for witnesses.
