THE battle to stop a mosque being built in a Gold Coast hinterland estate is turning nasty, with a pig's head posted on a fence and signs publicising the Islamic project vandalised.
The Sunday Mail believes police were called after a pig's head splattered with red paint was hung on a fence at the site.
The incident has sparked fears of a protracted hate campaign against the Muslim community.
The words "terrorists" and "Go back to Afghanistan" were scribbled across planning signs outside the property in Alkira Way at Worongary.
A resident, who asked not to be named, told The Sunday Mail: "This place will become a war zone. There are old people living here who are scared."
