The following video was shot yesterday in the culturally enriched Nørrebro district of Copenhagen. I asked our Danish correspondent Kepiblanc to take a look at it and tell us what was going on:
The video begins with two female politicians — the one with the red hair, Inge Støjberg, from a semi-conservative party (Venstre), the other one a Muslima from some leftist party — who organized a demonstration against a Hizb ut-Tahrir meeting. They’re demanding that Muslims behave according to Danish law and reject sharia.
Then the camera focuses on the yelling Muslim. He repeatedly shouts: “længe leve sharia!” (“long live sharia!”).
The crowd ignores him until an elderly gentleman pushes the intelligent looking cultural enricher a bit and tells him to get lost. The cops show up and separate the two.
Finally, a couple of other Muslims accompany their “brother” away.
I guess the video is quite self-explanatory…
Below are excerpts from an article in The Local about the same event:
The Islamic organisation Hizb ut-Tahrir’s pro-Sharia rally in Copenahgen’s Nørrebro district on Sunday was greeted by protestors who feel that Islamic law has no place in Denmark.
Hizb ut-Tahrir’s ‘Proud of Sharia’ (Stolt over sharia) meeting in Nørrebrohallen gathered members and supporters of the international Islamic group, which openly supports the establishment of a caliphate and is listed as one of five Muslim extremist groups operating in Denmark.
The meeting addressed the City of Copenhagen’s proposed integration plan, which has a stated goal of getting “the number of Copenhageners who support Sharia Law to fall”.
Hizb ut-Tahrir has positioned the city’s strategy as “an attack against Islam and Muslims” and held its meeting on Sunday to express their support for implementing Sharia Law.
“We in Hizb ut-Tahrir have a stated goal of protecting Islam and getting Muslims to adhere to their values. We have therefore repeatedly revealed Danish politicians’ attacks against Islam and Muslims, and this time is no exception,” the group wrote on its website.
A counter-protest outside of the Hizb ut-Tahrir meeting included appearances by local politician Lars Aslan Rasmussen, and Venstre MP Inger Støjberg, who earlier this year created controversy by proposing that immigrants from predominately Muslim countries should have a more difficult time entering Denmark.
Rasmussen said he was there to show that many in the local community are firmly against Hizb ut-Tahrir and their Islamic message.
