Swedish Court Revoke Ban on Quran Desecration

Despite the rise in Islamophobic incidents, five terror suspects have been detained during a coordinated operation in Sweden, and a Swedish court has repealed a ban on Quran burning.

Protests in the Muslim world were provoked by the desecration of the Koran outside Turkey’s embassy in a European country. Arab countries even called for a boycott of Swedish goods.

Earlier, authorities forbade burnings of the Qur’an in the nation’s capital last month because these actions rendered Sweden a more urgent target for assaults. Istanbul and other countries fiercely condemned the demonstration as Erdogan’s administration prevented Sweden from joining NATO.

Amid this paradox, Swedish politicians have denounced Quran blasphemy while defending the right to freedom of speech.

Rasmus Paludan, a notorious politician from Denmark, caused controversy in January of this year when he set a Quran copy on fire in Stockholm.
