Racist demos in Stockholm being led by head of Denmark’s Stram Kurs group, who has been banned from entering Sweden. Members of a Danish far-right group burned a copy of the Quran in Sweden, only days after a similar incident in the southern city of Malmo. A video posted by the leader of the Stram Kurs (Hard Line) group showed a man burning the Muslim holy book in the Rinkeby neighbourhood. Rinkeby, in the capital Stockholm, has a large Muslim and migrant population. “Today, Stram Kurs, burned the Quran in Swedish sh*t hole ghetto Rinkenby,” Rasmus Paludan wrote on Facebook. “A lot of criminals have said that we would never be able to do this. But we did it. Islam is an evil and primitive religion that has no place in Denmark, Sweden or any other civilised society,” he added. The group had earlier asked police for permission to burn the Quran in Rinkeby but the request was denied. The latest act came amid reports that the party is planning more demonstrations in five Stockholm suburbs on September 12. According to Euronews, members of Sweden’s Muslim community held a meeting on Tuesday to discuss how to deal with the demonstrations this weekend.
