Salwan Momika, known for descrating Quran, reportedly found dead

Momika had recently moved from Sweden to Norway

An Iraqi national involved in multiple incidents of desecration of the Holy Quran, was reportedly found dead in Norway on Monday.

Although there is no official statement about his death, several websites and social media accounts have clamed that Salwan Momika was ‘found dead’.

On March 27, Momika had announced on his X account that he had reached Norway and was now under ‘protection of the Norwegian authorities’.

“I applied for asylum and international protection in Norway because Sweden does not accept asylum for philosophers and thinkers, but only accepts asylum for terrorists,” he had said.

“My love and respect for the Swedish people will remain the same, but the persecution I was subjected to by the Swedish authorities does not represent the Swedes.”

He had also written that his ‘struggle’ against Islam will continue.

“I will continue my struggle against Islamic ideology. Since I started the struggle against Islam, I have paid and continue to pay the price, and I am ready for that, whatever the cost,” he had written.

Momika, who described himself as a ‘liberal atheist’, had been involved in multiple actos of desecration of the Holy Quran in Sweden, done with the permission of Swedish authorities.

His demonstrations had often been staged outside embassies of Muslim countries.
