A Muslim demonstration with 2500 attendees opposing the Norwegian newspaper, Dagbladet and its decision to publish a caricature the Prophet Muhammad took place outside the University of Oslo. The march then moved to the down town region of the city before reaching a police presence shortly before the offices of the Dagbladet newspaper. Oslo, Norway. 12/02/2010.
Mr. Mohyeldeen Mohammad who hosted part of the demonstration in Oslo said:
If this will be allowed to continue in the end it will be too late. Then we'll get a September 11th and a June 7th on Norwegian soil. This is not a threat, but a warning.
Mr. Mohammad is currently studying in the Islamic University of Madinah, Saudi Arabia and is supposedly a spokesman of a group called "De frivillige" (The volunteers).
In an interview with the Norwegian newspaper Klassekampen published on Tuesday Mr. Mohammad stated that gay people deserve to die.
Klassekampen: On Facebook I´ve seen that you support jihadists in Afghanistan and Somalia. Does that mean that you support al-Shaabab?
Mr. Mohammad: Yes, if they are Muslim. If they make mistakes, it´ll be between Allah and them.
Klassekampen: They have stoned a person to death? (possibly reffering to the World Press Photo of the year 2009)
Mr. Mohammad: As far as I know that person was gay, and then he received the punishment he deserved.
The Dagbladet newspaper has filed a police complaint against Mr. Mohammad after he threatened their staff. Journalists from the newspaper waited outside his parents house in Larvik, Norway in order to get a comment from him.
MR. Mohammad: 'Why are you sitting outside my parents house? I don´t live here anymore'.
Dagbladet Journalists: 'We would like to talk with you'.
Mr. Mohammad: 'If you don´t leave now you will be shot'.
Dagbladet Journalists: 'We only want to talk with you'.
Mr. Mohammad: 'There are people on their way over here to shoot you'.
After this conversation the journalists decided to leave the place.
