UPDATED: As the court case against accused Mullah Krekar enters its second week, Somali Prime Minister Abdiweli Mohamed Ali clearly stated what will happen to him should he enter the country, reports say.
Speaking on his first-ever visit to Norway this week, Prime Minister Ali said, “We have enough problems in Somalia already, we don’t need people like him. He will meet his death in Somalia.”
The Mullah, who recently intimated he wished to relocate to Somalia to teach Arabic, is currently on trial for making death threats against Conservative Party (H) leader Erna Solberg, amongst others, and several Kurds. He claimed he has nothing against Mrs Solberg and denied he is guilty.
“I will travel [to Somalia] with freedom, pride, and dignity, not because I will be jailed for something,” Krekar said.
Krekar, whose real name is Najmuddin Faraj Ahmad and the former leader of the Ansar al-Islam guerilla group , has also encouraged terrorism against the West including suicide bombings in Iraq against US personnel and American interests.
Meanwhile, Norwegian Police Security Service (PST) officials are investigating threats made on Facebook against two of the Kurds in the Krekar case.
According to NRK, the Facebook group is originally meant to back a peaceful demonstration against burning the Koran on 02 March.
Describing the two persons as “pests” and “pigs”, extreme Islamists encourage the Kurds are tortured. The home address of one of them, and the name and picture to the other has been published.
Under the picture, a group member called them ‘Kuffars’, the plural form of the Arabic word ‘Kafir’, meaning ‘non-believers’, writing, “I believe killing him with fire is permissible in this case. This is a warning to all Kuffars.”
Both Kurds, assisted by another, made a video showing a burning Koran, which was subsequently uploaded to YouTube.
Alleging he has not made death threats against the two individuals, Krekar has nevertheless issued a Fatwa against them for their actions, declaring in court that anyone who burns the Koran deserves to die.
