On Eid 2023, Salwan Momica shocked the world when she attacked a copy of the Quran, the holy book of Muslims, and then burned it in front of Stockholm’s largest mosque.

Former Iraqi militia leader Salwan Momika has been found dead in Norway. Momica, who gained global fame and notoriety for advocating free speech and the public burning of the Quran, had moved to Norway from Sweden. Momika described herself as a liberal atheist critic and thinker. Salwan Momica shocked the world on Eid in June 2023 when he attacked a copy of the Quran, the holy book of Muslims, and then burned it in front of Stockholm’s largest mosque. One of his friends filmed this act of defiance. Radio Genoa reported on Tuesday that a 37-year-old man had been found dead, but later said it was awaiting further confirmation. Earlier it was said that the lifeless body of Iraqi refugee and Islamic critic Salwan Saba Matti Momica has been found in Norway. Momika was known for organizing demonstrations in Sweden where she publicly burned the Quran several times.

Last year in the month of August, two persons Salwan Momika and Salwan Najem first kicked the holy book and then set fire to its pages before closing it. The two involved in this incident were the same ones who had committed a similar mischief outside Stockholm’s main mosque in the month of June. Shockingly, the police allowed a protest outside Parliament on Monday in which agitated protesters allegedly planned to burn the Muslim holy book.

There have been protests in Muslim countries over incidents of public desecration of the Quran by some anti-Islamic people in Sweden. Loke Rasmussen said the cabinet of the country’s Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen is committed to finding a legal way to curb such acts without compromising freedom of expression.
