Riots broke out in the Swedish town of Malmo on 29th august. The riots started after fa- right leader of the Danish political party, Rasmus Paludan was denied permission to enter Sweden to have a ‘Quran-burning rally’ in town. He was stopped at the border and sent back.
The police informed that Paludan had engaged in ‘anti-Islamic’ activities and was likely to incite racial hatred. About 300 people were seen on the streets by evening as the violence escalated.
“There was also a risk that his behaviour would pose a threat to society,” Malmo police authorities said in a statement.
According to reports, the supporters of the right-wing activist held the rally and threw stones at the police. Afterwards, three people were arrested on grounds of inciting racial hatred while the leader himself was issued a 2 years’ ban from entering Sweden.
He later took to Facebook and said, “Sent back and banned from Sweden for two years. However, rapists and murderers are always welcome!”
The leader is infamous for last years’ incident where he burnt the holy book of Quran wrapped in bacon- a meat that is anathema for Muslims.
