So going to the root of this protest, it all began when member of Far-right Danish Party Stram Kurs burnt a copy of the religious book of Islam i.e the Quran. As this far-right activist party is known for its anti Islamic agenda.

And this was the reason they burnt the holy book. Therefore this act triggered the religious sentiments of the Muslims in the country.

And therefore a violent protest erupted. More than 300 people came out to protest against this act in Malmo, Sweden.  But it took a violent turn when protesters started pelting stones at the police and burnt tyres on the roads.

Although they were furious by the act of the Stram Kurs activists. But violence is never the solution of anything. Therefore several protesters were arrested for their violent act.

But were released later.

Moreover the protests in Sweden became more violent when they got a news that the leader of the Stram Kurs party Rasmus Paludan is coming to Malmo to speak at an anti-Islam event. This news created more rage in people as they thought that more anti-Islam activities will take place during the event.
