The authorities have not been able to arrest anyone involved in the incident. A huge debate has sparked over speculations whether the graffiti was drawn by Muslims or by far-right groups in the country to fuel anti-Muslim hatred.

Following the brutal Woolwich attack on British soldier Lee Rigby, incidents of violence and vandalism against Muslims living in the UK have become frequent.

Secretary of Bomber Command Association, Douglas Radcliffe told ITV News, “I’m standing here until this graffiti is removed. The 77,000 young men who died, died to give whoever put that graffiti there the freedom to live in this country and honour it, so I can't believe that somebody would do this.”
