Muslims have targeted Swedish artist Lars Vilks since he published a cartoon depicting Mohammad’s face on the body of a dog.
Vilks has received death threats since he drew this image of the prophet Mohammad with a dog’s body back in 2007.
Fanatical Muslims screaming “Allahu Akbar” attacked Swedish artist Lars Vilks during a lecture on free expression at Karlstad University.
The Blaze reported:
Swedish artist Lars Vilks is no stranger to controversy. In the past, he has angered Muslims by creating drawings and art that are highly critical of the Prophet Muhammad. On Tuesday, Vilks, 65, was speaking at Karlstad University in central Sweden when protesters (purportedly Muslims) began attacking the artist with eggs. Ironically, he was invited to the university to speak about free expression (he also presented yet another drawing of Muhammad).
According to Vilk’s account, around a dozen people started yelling at him and throwing eggs while he was addressing the audience. Of course, this isn‘t the first time he’s been targeted and it likely won’t be the last — something the well-known figure has accepted.
The radicals screamed, hurled eggs and shut down the speech.
It was not the first time Vilks was attacked by radical Islamists. Muslim radicals torched the home of the Swedish artist Lars Vilks in May 2010. Windows were smashed, there was minor fire damage to the front of the house and plastic bottles filled with petrol were found inside the property. Earlier that month Vilks was headbutted and tackled during a college lecture on free speech. Muslims are angry that Vilks drew the head of Mohammad on body of a dog.
