The defacing of Islam’s holy scripture is considered an act of provocation to most in Indonesia, host of the world’s largest Muslim population, regardless of whether the act was aimed at another nation entirely.


Swedish-Danish activist Rasmus Paludan, who has previously been convicted of racial abuse, repeated the act he did last year in front of the Turkish Embassy in Stockholm on Saturday in protest against Ankara’s demands to repatriate Kurdish activists, a sticking point in Sweden’s attempt to join the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
