Foreign news agency AFP’s neighboring country Sweden. Denmark stepped up security earlier this month after a series of Quran burnings in recent months. Denmark’s Law and justice minister told reporters that the government was investigating the inappropriate treatment of items of religious importance to the religious community. The Law and Justice Minister said that the proposed legislation comes after the desecration of the Holy Quran and the burning of holy books in public places.
An insulting and immoral act
They said that burning the Holy Quran is basically an insulting and immoral act that can harm Denmark and its interests. Panel code Act Chapter 12, which covers national security, will be added, adding that national security is the primary motivation for the ban. About 1,000 protesters tried to march on the Danish embassy in Baghdad’s fortified Green Zone in July.
“We cannot stand idly by while others do everything, they can to incite a violent reaction,” said Denmark’s law minister. As a result of this response, Sweden and Denmark increased border controls in August, and Denmark ended the measure on 22 August. The proposed Danish legislation would also apply to the desecration of the Bible, the Torah, or, for example, crucifixes, with violators facing fines or up to two years in prison. The law, however, would not cover verbal or written expressions offensive to religious communities, including cartoons, the justice minister said.
Emphasized that Denmark
He emphasized that Denmark strongly adheres to its freedom of expression laws. The ban comes six years after Denmark repealed its 334-year-old blasphemy law, which will be tabled in parliament in September. The bill is expected to pass parliament, where the left-wing government has a majority. Denmark’s Foreign Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen said that the burning of the Holy Qur’an has caused outrage all over the world.
Hard To Control This Anger
The foreign minister said that we have tried hard to control this anger. The situation is quite calm at the moment, but it is also uncertain and unpredictable. He said that in the shortest time before the new law comes into effect. Perhaps see the Holy Quran burning more than before. Keep in mind that after the publication of sketches of the Prophet of Islam in 2006, there was intense anger and hatred against Denmark in the Muslim world. The Swedish government, while condemning the desecration of the Holy Quran, has upheld the country’s constitutionally mandated freedom of speech and assembly laws. Sweden, however, has vowed to find legal means to prevent protests over the burning of holy scriptures under certain circumstances.
