Tehran (IP)- Pointing at the recent desecration of the Quran in Sweden, the First Deputy Speaker of Iran's Islamic Consultative Assembly described European-style freedom as an absolute dictatorship.

Iran Press/Iran news: "The fact that insulting the Quran is considered freedom is a dictatorship, and no more is expected from the West and Europe regarding freedom," Ali Nikzad said.

Rasmus Paludan, leader of a right-wing and anti-Islamic Danish party, also known as the "Hard Line party," along with his supporters, has planned to set the Qur'an on fire in a mainly-Muslim area in the Swedish city of Linkoping. They were forced to leave the place due to the protest of the Muslims and the intervention of the police.

Videos posted on social media show dozens of counter-protesters demonstrating against a far-right group's intention to burn the Qur'an.

Similar clashes erupted in the Swedish city of Malmö last summer, with anti-Islamic groups setting fire to a copy of the Quran, leading to street riots.

Rasmus Paludan, the leader of the "Hard Line" party, had previously set fire to the Quran in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark.
