KABUL (Pajhwok): The Swedish government has been considering legislation to criminalise the desecration of Holy Scriptures, according to the media reports on Friday.
Sweden Justice Gunnar Strommer Minister said: “We have to ask ourselves whether the current order is good or whether there is reason to reconsider it.”
He added that Sweden had become a “prioritised target” for attacks.
“We can see that the incident last week has generated threats to our internal security.”
The move comes after an Iraqi immigrant in Sweden desecrated the Holy Quran outside a Stockholm mosque last week, causing outrage in the Muslim world and condemnation from the Pope. The Swedish security services said such action left the country less safe.
