Muslim immigrant in Denmark jailed for threatening to behead the Danish royal family, wife claims he gets high on hashish

The Muslim immigrant had claimed over Facebook posts that he is going to behead Denmark's queen, the Danish royal family, the Swedish king and the chief of a Swedish far-right party.

A 33-year old Muslim resident of Copenhagen, Denmark, has been sentenced to 10-days judicial custody by a local court in Denmark after he was found guilty of issuing death threats to the Danish Royal family through his social media posts.

In a series of Facebook posts, the man, who has reportedly been radicalised, threatened to behead the Queen of Denmark, Margrethe II, along with the whole Danish Royal Family. Moreover, the man working in Sweden also threatened to kill the Swedish King Carl XVI Gustaf as well as the founder and leader of the far-right party, Hard-line, in Denmark, Rasmus Paladin. The party is known for its strong anti-Islamic views.

“I cut the head of Queen [Margrete II] and the whole [Danish] Royal family. I have warned, and I won’t go for anything other than the throat”, the man reportedly wrote on Facebook.

Moreover, in-between October 16 to 24, he had allegedly written five more posts in which along with the Danish Queen he threatened the Swedish King, Carl XVI Gustaf. He wrote: “Last warning to the Swedish police and border police if I do not receive an answer soon, then, with God’s will, I will put down the state and the king, even if I am then forced to sever his head from his body”, threatened the Islamist.

He also posted a photo of Rasmus Paludan, the leader of Swedish a far-right party, Hard-line (Danish: Stram Kurs), which has burnt copies of the Quran to celebrate freedom of speech in Denmark. “If you are a man, show your face in public, and if you burn the words of the Quran, I will burn entire Denmark including you”, the man wrote.

His wife feared that he was suffering from a mental illness due to the overdose of hashish which he was regularly smoking up. Owing to his abnormal behaviour and the growing violent streak, she had reportedly urged him to seek out a psychologist and also reported him to the local Imam and then to the Copenhagen Police.

During his hearing, the man held that he is practising Islam but was not ‘excessively religious’ and that he was growing a beard merely to see whether it suited him. His arguments apparently didn’t convince the Danish court which sentenced him to jail for 10 days and charged with making threats to do bodily harm.

The man has a Swedish residence permit but lives in Copenhagen with his wife and daughter. He reportedly travels daily to the Swedish city of Malmo for work.
