Sweden withdraws protection from the burner of the Qur’an and threatens him to review his asylum documents


The Swedish authorities withdrew protection from the extremist Silwan Momica, who burned the copy of the Qur’an, threatening him to review his asylum documents in Sweden, according to what he said in a video posted on Tik Tok.

Momica, who burned and tore a copy of the Quran in front of a mosque in Stockholm, added that the Swedish authorities had asked him through the police to stop demonstrating and criticizing Muslims.

The Swedish police had allowed the organization of a demonstration whose organizers planned to burn a copy of the Qur’an outside the Stockholm Grand Mosque, coinciding with Eid al Adha.

This act was widely condemned by several countries, prompting the Swedish government to back down and condemn the burning of a copy of the Qur’an, describing it as an “anti-Islamic act”.

Earlier, the Iranian Ministry of Security revealed the details of the relationship between Israeli intelligence and the abuser of the Qur’an in Sweden, Silwan Momica.

The statement of the Iranian Ministry of Security stated that, based on reliable information obtained, Silwan Momica was born in Iraq in 1986, and worked in the service of the Israeli Mossad in 2019.

The Iranian Ministry of Security statement added that Silwan Momica information about the Iraqi resistance factions to Mossad, within the framework of the project to divide Iraq.

After his stay in Sweden, according to Iranian security, he continued his missions for the benefit of the Zionist entity, according to his new circumstances.

A few days ago, the United Nations Human Rights Council adopted a resolution condemning acts of religious hatred, such as burning, a copy of the Qur’an, after Pakistan, on behalf of a number of Organization of Islamic Cooperation, demanded an emergency discussion.

On the other hand, Britain, the United States, and some member states of the European Union refused to condemn this act during the discussion.

For its part, the Swedish police allowed the organization of a small gathering in front of the Iraqi embassy in Stockholm, where the organizer intends to burn a copy of the Qur’an and the Iraqi flag, according to what the police and local media reported on Wednesday.

According to the request, seen by Agence France-Presse, two people intend to gather Thursday between 13:00 and 15:00 local time (11:00 and 13:00 GMT) in front of the embassy.

The organizer said he wanted to burn a copy of the Qur’an during the gathering, according to the Swedish News Agency, which indicated that he was the same person who organized the burning of the Qur’an in front of a mosque in Stockholm last month.

The Swedish police confirmed that the permission wasn’t granted on the basis of an official request to burn religious books, but on the basis of holding a public gathering during which an opinion would be expressed under the constitutional right to freedom of assembly.

A police spokesman said that didn’t mean they agreed to what would happen.

The first copy of the Quran was burned in January by the right-wing Swedish-Danish extremist Rasmus Paludan to denounce Sweden’s request to join NATO and negotiate with Türkiye for this purpose.

On June 28, an Iraqi refugee in Sweden, Silwan Momica, burned pages from the Qur’an in front of Stockholm’s largest mosque on Eid al Adha.

The two incidents sparked condemning reactions in the Islamic world.

The Swedish government in January and June condemned the offensive and “anti-Islam” actions, but does not intend to change Swedish law, which is more liberal than any other country.

On the other hand, the police can refuse to allow a demonstration if it threatens the security of the country or if it leads to acts or words that incite racial hatred.
