The Islamic cultural center, that one of the two mosques of Warsaw and houses a restaurant, is an important modern building whose construction was completed in 2015.

"We are still waiting for measures to combat hate statements against Muslims in Poland, which have increased dramatically in recent years, especially since the outbreak of the migration crisis", said the Coordinator of the Center, Ahmad Alattal, against .

"We receive constant threats by email, on social networks and also by phone, a month and a half ago we had a similar incident, but of a smaller size. A glass bottle was shattered on the glass of the front door, "he said.

"The only answer we got from the Polish authorities was that of the Chancellery of the Senate who told us that they understood our fear, but that our fears were unfounded, so nothing was done to protect us," lamented Alattal.
