SWEDEN, 12 OCT 2023: For the first time in Sweden, a man was sentenced for hagitation against ethnic group for burning a Quran, on 12 October by a lower court in Linköping. The man burned the for Muslims holy book with bacon, and filmed with music connected to a terror attack by extreme right in Christchurch, Swedish media reported. He later left the Qaran with bacon at a local mosque. The 27-year old convicted does not have to go to jail, but the ruling holds some limitations and warnings for the convict. The past months the Quran has been burned in public in Sweden by a few individuals, but until now no one was sentenced. The convicted himself does not acknowledge any crime.
