COPENHAGEN (AA) - Right wing extremist leader of a Danish party on Friday burnt a copy of Muslim holy book to protest people performing weekly prayer in front of Danish parliament.
In an attempt to provoke the Muslims’ Friday weekly prayer in front of the Danish parliament -- which was organized after legal permissions acquired to protest last week's deadly terror attacks in New Zealand --, a group of extreme right wingers carried Israeli flag and disturbed the Muslim group with air horns during their prayer.
Rasmus Paludan, leader of the Stram Kurs -- anti-immigrant and anti-Islamic party -- tried to provoke people by burning a copy of Quran.
The Copenhagen police took intensive security measures and six people were detained.
Last Friday, at least 50 Muslims were killed and as many injured when a terrorist -- identified as Australian-born Brenton Tarrant, 28, -- entered the Al Noor and Linwood mosques in Christchurch, New Zealand and shot worshippers in cold blood, including four children younger than 18.
