A second Queensland mosque has been vandalised in less than a week, this time in southern Brisbane.

Vandals have graffitied hate-filled messages on a mosque in southern Brisbane.

Police were called to the prayer centre in Rocklea about 7pm (AEST) on Wednesday after members discovered the damage.

“Muslims are evil and have no respect for our ways” and the word “die” had been sprayed on the entrance, according to an ABC report.

The incident is the second defacing of a Queensland mosque in less than a week.

Vandals spray-painted the word “Evil” across a mosque in Mareeba in north Queensland on Friday.

Mayor Tom Gilmore told AAP the prayer site had been part of the area since the 1950s and the Muslim members were a “highly respected” part of the community.

The attack on the mosque did not reflect the attitudes of the wider community, he said.
