The Norwegian public burned the Quran, police had to rescue him



NORWAY's anti-Islamic organization “Stop the Islamization of Norway” (SIAN) staged a protest performance last week that dumped the Koran in the trash and then set it on fire.

She did it in Kristiansand, a city with a considerable Muslim minority. But as soon as SIAN leader Lars Thorsen set fire to the Quran, a young Muslim counterterror ran into him, struck him and tried to knock him to the ground.



As seen in the dramatic footage of the event, several more counter-protesters came running behind him, but immediately followed by police officers who appeared to have stopped them. Afterwards, they stopped the demonstration, which was surrounded by a crowd of counter-protesters.

Kristiansand Mayor Harald Furre condemned the burning of the Koran. “I'm sorry the police did not intervene earlier and prevent the firing,” Furre said, according to Norwegian television NRK.

Police also explained that they had suspended the protest over a new order from police chief Benedicte Bjornland, which “defiling the Koran may, in a particular context, be a violation of hate speech”:

Pakistanis praise “hero” who attacked activist who set fire to Quran

The burning of the Koran has provoked anger from many Muslims from Norway, but also from around the world, especially from Pakistan, on social networks. Many have also praised the attacker on the Norwegian provocateur as a “hero”, since he “saved” a holy Muslim book.

According to information on social networks, the attacker is named Iijjas Umer. An online petition has also been launched asking the Norwegian police to release Umer arrested.

There was also a protest in Karachi, on which the American and Norwegian flags were lit.

Protests of this type, but often far more violent, followed the release of the caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad in Denmark in 2005 after the US pastor announced that he would fire the Quran in 2010, after the release of the anti-Islamic American film “Innocence of Muslims” in 2012, or after the French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo published cartoons of Muhammad and Allah, which is why al-Qaeda terrorists massacred them in their newsroom.

But the weekend was followed by an official reaction from the government of Pakistan, whose foreign ministry expressed “deep concern” over the burning of the Koran in Norway.

Pakistan: This offends the sentiments of 1.3 billion Muslims worldwide

“Such actions offend the sentiments of 1.3 billion Muslims worldwide,” the Pakistani ministry warned in a statement. They added that such actions “cannot be justified in the name of freedom of expression” and that Oslo should “prevent” such incidents in the future.

Salute to locks #Ilyas for displaying courage to stop an absolutely deplorable action. Such Islamophobia based provocations only promote hatred & extremism. All religions are and must remain respectable. Islamophbia is a threat to global peace and harmony. # TheGloriousQuran # Norway pic.twitter.com/CRahq5mazf

“Greetings to brave Ilias for showing the courage to stop this absolutely disgusting act. Such Islamophobic provocations only promote hatred and extremism. All religions are worthy of respect and must remain so. Islamophobia is a threat to global peace and harmony,” he wrote on his private Twitter profile of Asif Gafur, spokesman for the Pakistani Armed Forces, recording the incident.

The Norwegian ambassador to Islamabad was invited for an interview. All of this, of course, is reminiscent of the reaction of many Muslim-majority countries following the already mentioned 2005 Mohammed cartoon.

In Norway in August, however, a right-wing extremist attacked a mosque in the Oslo suburb in a firefight. Fortunately, one of the believers managed to take his shotgun and prevent him from killing someone.
