A group of Muslims arrived at a mosque in Germany for Friday Prayers to find the doorway had been blocked by bricks and anti-Muslim flyers distributed.

Police are investigating the incident which took place in Parchim on 26 August and is being blamed on a Far Right organisation. Muslims in the small town of 19,000 people have been shaken by the incident.

There are only around 150 Muslims in Parchim and it does not have a permanent mosque, just an adapted transformer station. According to the Telegraph, the mosque has no minaret and no call to prayer is broadcast on Fridays.

One of the flyers attached to the bricks read: "You call yourself believers, we call you invaders", while another quoted Turkey's President Erdogan: "The mosques are our barracks, the domes our helmets, the minarets our bayonets and the faithful our soldiers".

Germany has seen a huge influx of migrants since 2014, mostly Muslims, and this has coincided with a number of terror attacks in the country, although most have been blamed on Muslims with psychiatric issues.

Incidents such as the Munich attack and a number of well-publicised incidents at swimming pools have fuelled anti-Muslim resentment. Chancellor Angela Merkel has also come in for criticism and is faring poorly in the polls.

Parchim holds a small group of Muslim residents and they are said to be a mix of long-term German residents and a small number of recent arrivals, mostly from Syria and Kurds from Turkey. The town is in Mecklenburg-West Pomerania, where far right groups are active. One local migrant support group said this was the second time the mosque had been attacked, reports the Star.

"What's next?" Parchim's mayor Dirk Flörke, told the local Parchimer Zeitung newspaper. "Integration can only succeed if we all talk to each other. And we are now faced with the task of integrating the refugees."

The mayor's words appear to have been heeded. Soon after the mosque was bricked up, a new flyer was placed alongside the earlier ones. It read: "Walls are there to be torn down. Never give up hope. Be strong and stay happy."
