Sweden Will Deport Man Behind Quran Burnings Back to Iraq

Sweden is officially deporting Salwan Momika, the man allegedly behind the Qur’an burning protests, with local reports indicating that a Swedish court has upheld the deportation order against the man whose actions sparked global outrage. 

According to the reports, the decision to oust Momika came a few months after the immigration authorities refused to extend Momika’s residence permit, after he reportedly provided “false information,” in his asylum application.

Momika led a number of hostile Quran-burning protests which were protected by Swedish authorities, then causing an uproar across the globe, particularly amongst Muslim communities. 

Several communities have also held Sweden responsible for doing little to nothing against the Islamophobic attacks.
