Far-right Danish politician, Rasmus Paludan, burned a copy of the Holy Quran in the neighborhood of Sweden on April 14th under police protection, reports TRT World.

The neighborhood is a densely populated Muslim area. While Paludan was burning the Holy Quran, riots broke out as residents protested against the burning of the Holy Quran. The crowd shouted at Paludan. Three police officers suffered minor injuries in the riots.

Also, Dutch politician Geert Wilders has initiated a systematic blasphemous campaign against Holy Prophet Muhammad and voicing his hate against Muslims since the ouster of former prime minister Imran Khan.

He has been passing disrespectful statements against Holy Prophet and criticized Imran Khan as well. Moreover, Israeli forces have unleashed violence on the peaceful worshippers in the Masjid Al-Aqsa mosque for the past two days. They baton-charged the worshippers and opened fire on them. They forced the worshippers to leave the premises of Al-Aqsa.

Imran Khan on Friday took to Twitter and condemned the attack on the mosque. He said: “Strongly condemn the attack by Israeli occupation forces on Al Aqsa mosque during Friday prayers in the month of Ramazan. Al Aqsa mosque is the third holiest site for Muslims & today Muslims across the world feel this hurt deeply.” Imran Khan had been extremely vocal regarding Islamophobia and disrespect for Holy Prophet.

Islamophobic and blasphemous campaigns have gained pace since the removal of Imran Khan from the prime minister’s office. Geert Wilders celebrated his removal from the office. In his earlier tweet, he said: “The former Pakistani prime minister @ImranKhanPTI calls me a blasphemer in front of a screaming crowd. So glad this hate monger is no longer in office. He is as dangerous as Muhammad was.”

Pakistan has so far not issued any strong condemnation of the blasphemous campaigns taking place in several countries.
