Police in Sweden have resorted to violence against the Muslim youth who protested against the anti-Islam movie recently produced in the United States. The young Muslim protesters gathered at a movie theatre screening the blasphemous movie and chanted "God is Great." The protesters tried to prevent the scurrilous show by stopping the screen projector, but the police forces clashed with them violently.
Meanwhile, a police officer attacked a female protester, threw her on the ground and began jumping on her body and choking her.Afterwards, the police forces attacked the protesters and beat them furiously, while the Muslim youth were only reacting by chanting “God is Great.” The Muslim nations’ fury over the sacrilegious movie continues to rage across the world with angry protests being held in many Islamic countries. So far, almost a dozen protesters have died in the wave of violence over the movie, produced on a budget of USD 5 million. US officials have deployed marine units to Libya and Yemen, and stationed two destroyers off the North African coast. The Yemeni parliament has disapproved of the US military presence, while Sana’a has agreed to the deployment. Also on Saturday, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Sheikh Ahmed El-Tayeb issued a statement, addressed to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, in which he emphasized "the need for an international resolution [banning] any attack on Muslim religious symbols."
