Man praised for cleaning up after Koran riots arrested for rioting

A Swedish man who was praised by Swedish media for cleaning up after last year’s Koran-related Easter riots has been arrested after being accused of being involved in the riots himself.

Hani Bilal Madi, a 20-year-old from the city of Örebro, was detained by Swedish police after allegedly being involved in last year’s Easter riots in the city following the burning of the Islamic Koran by Danish anti-Islam activist Rasmus Paludan and his group Stram Kurs (hardcover line).

Madi was arrested on suspicion of throwing rocks and rocks at police during riots, a Swedish newspaper reported Allehand’s Nerikes reports.

The arrest came despite Madi being praised by the newspaper shortly after the riots Aftonbladet in April last year for helping clean up a local park where there was a riot, and was later even decorated for his actions.

“There was so much going on in my head when I got to the park after the riot. Brutal action is never a solution, but we have to take care of each other,” Madi said at the time.

“We wanted to show some love. Both the residents of the affected area and the police. In addition to cleaning, we also gave flowers to homeowners whose plots of land had been vandalized,” he added.

Hani also explained that the thought of burning the Qur’an should be illegal, saying: “All religious writings should be protected by law. Islam is my identity and the identity of many others, and it imprints on you that it is not subject to “incitement to racial hatred.” The police authorities should have made a better decision sooner.”

Madi denied the allegations against him.

Since the Easter riots, several people have been convicted of both attacking the police and sabotaging police operations, many of them immigrants to Sweden.

A report published last month suggested that police lacked the appropriate skills and manpower to deal with the violence, leading some officers to later express concerns that they thought they would die in the violence.
