An Eaglehawk resident found a flyer in his letterbox appearing to criticise the mosque, the City of Greater Bendigo, Bendigo Bank and Muslims.

Merv Nash was amused to find the flyer in his letterbox at 6pm on Monday evening.

The flyer has been drawn free-hand and shows a picture of a Bendigo Bank building, a Catholic church, a Muslim head dress, and the words "Bendigo City Council's Vision". 

He said the illustration looked like a "kiddy-type drawing".

The illustration also had a deflated black balloon stapled to it. 

He said others in his area had received the same thing.

"I checked neighbours, they’ve all got one," Mr Nash said.

"My neighbours in Church Street have one in their letterboxes but I have not looked in the whole area."

He said no source was mentioned on the flyer and he was "very confused" about the point that was being made.

He was not personally incensed by the flyer and but said that it was an act of cowardice. "If you've got something to say, you should be prepared to put your name to what your saying," he said.

"I am not for or against whatever it is they are trying to say and I am certainly not swayed either way because of this mail piece in what could be construed to be hate mail against some unspecified religion," he said.

"If it is no more than some childish prank then I guess we should all have a good laugh and move on. "He said the author's decision to be "hidden" meant they had "no courage of their convictions".
