No-one in Denmark has been charged under blasphemy laws in nearly fifty years; societies move on, and leave outdated rules behind. Most societies, anyway. This particular law was brought down on a 42 year old man, whose name has not been released for his own safety, when he filmed himself burning a copy of the Quran.
The act was committed [when] the man burned a copy of the 7th century Islamic holy text in his own back yard. He later posted a recording of the burning with two captions: “Yes to freedom – no to Islam” and “Consider your neighbour: it stinks when it burns” to an Islam-critical Facebook page.
Charges were brought against the man by Danish prosecutor Jan Reckendorff, citing the blasphemy laws which were considered for removal back in 2015, but it was decided to keep them in place. This followed a young man in the UK having previously been arrested for Quran burning, and Canada is now considering implementing laws to make “Islamophobia” illegal.
Just over ten years ago, a Danish newspaper released ten pictures of Muhammed, which is forbidden in Islam. The paper’s editor wasn’t charged, despite pressure from the Muslim community. It seems that Europe is taking a giant step backward, perhaps to make their demanding guests feel comfortable.
