Edwin Wagensfeld, leader of the Movement of Patriotic Europeans Against the Islamization of the West (PEGIDA) in the Netherlands, tore up the Qur’an in an act he carried out alone in The Hague.
Wagensfeld published a picture of him tearing the Qur’an in front of the parliament building in the administrative capital, The Hague, yesterday at 14.00 local time, through his Twitter account.
While the demonstration, conducted by Wagensfeld alone, took place under police protection, the racist leader was reportedly allowed on the condition that he not burn the Koran.
In the continuation of the post, torn pages of the Qur’an were seen to have been burned in a frying pan elsewhere.
He was arrested at a demonstration in Rotterdam
Likewise, the work of PEGIDA, which planned to burn the Koran in Rotterdam on October 22, ended before Wagensfeld was taken into custody.
Islamic groups gathered at the place where the demonstration was planned in Rotterdam, and organized a counter-demonstration because the Pegida demonstration was not banned despite its announcement that it would burn the Quran.
Wagensfeld, who was released the same day after his arrest, wanted to do a similar act in The Hague the next day, but the police detained Wagensfeld again on the grounds that he had not complied with the demonstration rules.
In a written statement made by the Dutch Public Prosecutor’s Office on November 17, Hz. It was reported that Wagensfeld, who was detained by the police for insulting Muhammad, would not be prosecuted on the grounds that he had insulted the religion itself, not followers of the Islamic faith, and that he had committed no crime.
