Newsline: Anti-Islam group outside Saudi Arabia embassy in Prague dispersed

The police dispersed a demonstration held by Martin Konvicka’s Initiative (IMK) anti-Islam group outside the Saudi Arabia embassy in Prague, due to defamation of religion, on call of the City Hall’s officials. Konvicka’s supporters were disguised like Muslims and they placed a mobile toilet outside the embassy that should stand for Kaaba, the most sacred mosque in Mecca. They planned to “stone” it with crumpled pieces of newspaper to mock the ritual that Muslims consider holy. Exactly this performance was qualified as defamation of religion, and this is why the meeting was dispersed. The City Hall informed the organisers beforehand that their event would be dissolved in the case of downgrading religion.
