In a rare act of goodwill, anti-Muslim graffiti painted on a wall in Dublin, Ireland last week was promptly corrected by strangers.

With a few neat brush strokes, graffiti which initially read "All Muslims are scum” was changed to “All Muslims are sound”.

The message appeared on a wall near the Croke Park stadium following the terror attacks in Brussels, which killed at least 35 people.

Deputy digital editor at Channel 4, Brian Whelan, posted a before and after photo of the graffiti on Twitter which immediately started making rounds on social media. The images were shared widely, earning 2300 retweets and 2600 "likes" so far.



On Friday, Muslims gathered for prayers at Brussels’ Grand Mosque streamed outside to chant “Long Live Belgium,” feeling the pressure to tackle radicalisation after the attacks on the city.

“The time has come to act,” Imam Ndiaye Mouhameth Galaye told AFP ahead of his sermon. “Today we’re launching a programme against radicalisation.”

As the faithful arrived, the Belgian and European Union flags fluttered at the entrance to the city’s main mosque, close by EU headquarters and several embassies.

Many took to Twitter lauding the kind gesture.

Desi | 5 years ago | Reply @Raj - USA: Muslims of Belgium were not making any such impositions. The Islamic State Terrorists who practically have no religion and kill even Muslims, were actually inclined towards making such impositions. Get your facts right mate.
