Swedish politician threatened

Carl P. Herslow, leader of the right wing populist Skånepartiet, have received threats related to a poster distributed by Skånepartiet showing a drawing of a naked Muhammad holding hands with a likewise naked Aisha. Swedish police says they are taking the threats seriously.

Ammar Daoud, representative of a Muslim Organisation in Malmö says the drawing make him and other Muslims sad and that he regards the poster disrespectful and insulting. But, he continues, no one he knows of has threatened Herslow. It’s important, he says, not to react in a way which could “strengthen the racists case.” But they have reported the poster to the police.
