A worshipper at the Sungai Plong Mosque at Selangor, Malaysia, was injured yesterday (7 Mar) when a wild boar wandered into the mosque and charged at worshippers.

According to imam Ungku Ahmad Hazwan Ungku Kamarudin, worshippers had gathered to perform prayers around 8.30pm when the boar entered the mosque and charged at worshippers, injuring one worshipper – a Rohingya man – in the neck.

Some worshippers managed to chase the beast out of the premises but it charged at two stationary motorbikes, causing the bikes to fall over. The beast was finally shot dead by a worshipper who owned a shotgun.

According to the imam, almost the entire interior of the mosque and the verandah had been soiled by the boar. Officers from the Selangor Mufti Department are believed to have visited the mosque today to decide on the cleansing of the house of worship. Prayers are being held in the unstained area of the mosque, in the meantime.

A Rohingya man was found to have been injured but he did not make a police report.”
