EYEAFRICA TV: Corpenhagan: Activists of a Danish far-right group burned a copy of the Quran and raise a banner saying “Europe is ours” in Copenhagen to protest against the fast-breaking gathering of Muslims on Saturday.
Members of Stram Kurs anti-immigrant and anti-Islamic party tried to provoke people by burning a copy of Quran during the iftar gathering at the city’s square. Police removed the banners and dispersed protesters from the scene.
The iftar ended under heavy security and was attended by nearly 2,000 people. In march, members of the anti islamic party promised to burn the quran in a counter-protest to muslims who stood in solidarity with victims of the Christchurch mosque shootings in New Zealand. In 2017, a Danish man who posed a video of himself setting fire to the Quran on Facebook was charged with blasphemy making it the first of such prosecution for 46 years.
