The Islam-critical Danish politician Rasmus Paludan was invited by Dan Parks to burn a Koran today in the heavily culturally enriched district of Rosengård in the southern Swedish city of Malmö. However, Swedish authorities declared Mr. Paludan to be persona non grata, and would not let him into the country.
His supporters went ahead with the Koran abuse anyway, even without their mentor. The following news report describes what the rambunctious “youths” of Rosengård did in response to the mistreatment of the Koran.
Below are excerpts from a BBC article about what happened in Malmö:
Protest Against Koran-Burning Turns Violent in Sweden
Protesters against the burning of a Koran by far-right supporters in Sweden have clashed with police during several hours of rioting.
Cars were set on fire and shop fronts were damaged in the clashes in the southern city of Malmö which have now been brought under control. There were several arrests.
Earlier on Friday, police barred far-right Danish politician Rasmus Paludan from attending the Koran-burning rally.
His supporters went ahead regardless.
Swedish police turned Mr Paludan back at the border, saying there was a two-year entry ban for him.
