The sign was placed on a bridge near Carnon Downs in West
Cornwall. The sign is thought to be in response to plans to
convert a nearby derelict Methodist chapel into an Asian
Last month we reported how a pig's head attached to a cross
was nailed to the door of the chapel in Quenchwell Road and
racist graffiti were scrawled on walls.
Police said yesterday that displaying a sign was not an
offence in itself but they are examining the sheet for any
links to the attacks on the chapel.
Tipu Choudhury is the head of the group of businessman of
different faiths that has bought the chapel. He said: "I can
categorically say that this will not be a mosque. It's a
community centre to be run by ethnic minorities in
When asked if yesterday's graffiti or previous attacks might
cause the group to reconsider regarding plans for the former
chapel, Mr Choudhury said: "People who are putting posters up
or graffiti about mosques are misinformed.
"This will be similar to other village halls but rather than

Mr Choudhury, a Muslim originally from Bangladesh who has
lived in England for 23 years, has been trying to set up an
Asian community centre in Cornwall for many years.
Sgt Chris Manuell, the neighbourhood beat manager for the
area, said that the aggressive activity aimed at the centre was
based on false rumours.
