    Default 2 killed, attacker shot dead in stabbing attack at Malmesbury mosque

    Two people have been killed and several wounded in a stabbing attack at a mosque in Malmesbury in the Western Cape in the early hours of Thursday morning.

    Western Cape police confirmed that the attacker was shot dead by police.

    Provincial police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Andrè Traut said Malmesbury police were called out to the mosque in the early hours of the morning and found two people stabbed to death and several injured.

    "A couple of hours ago - about 03:00 - as people got themselves ready to pray, the suspect just got up and started stabbing the people. He was praying with them," Malmesbury Police Constable Henry Durant told News24.

    No warning

    Fellow worshippers said there was no warning that the suspect, believed to be a foreign national in his 30s, was about to commit the violent crime.

    "There was an old man and he tried to cut the old man's head off and the man died. Other people went to the Swartand hospital," said Durant from the scene.

    "This guy was not in a hurry - he was very calm - he did not run, he walked away. He had a big Rambo knife."

    Police officers approached the suspect, who refused to lay down his knife and charged at the officers.

    "He ignored the calls and tried to attack police. He was shot and killed in the process. His death will be investigated by IPID," Traut said.

    There is no identified motive for the crime yet.

    "We don't know anything. There is no information, there is no motive, there's nothing like that," said Durant.

    Provincial detectives are currently combing the scene for clues.

    RIP

    Question is, why are incidents like this happening at SA mosques? Would have been almost an unheard of thing in the past.

    RAMADAN
    Waiting for the sighting of the new moon Eid-ul-Fitr

    THE start of Ramadan, the 30-day fasting by Muslims, is determined by the first confirmed sighting of the new moon which is due on May 15 and will end on June 14.
    Practicing Muslims are not allowed to eat between sunrise and sunset to help teach “self-discipline, self-restraint and generosity”.
    Ramadan marks the month when Allah revealed the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad and on the 27th day of Ramadan, Muslims mark Lailat-al Qadr — the “Night of Power”.
    This is Islam’s holiest night and commemorates the day the Quran was revealed to the Prophet Muhammad.
    It involves spending the night praying, studying and reciting the holy text. However, the exact day of Lailat-al-Qadr falls was never actually specified by the Prophet Muhammad and some Muslims choose to commemorate the last ten days of Ramadan as if they were Lailat-al-Qadr.
    To mark the end of fasting, Muslims celebrate the Eid-ul-Fitr festival, beginning with early morning prayers and then a day of feasting with friends and family.
