Vilks Attacked During Seminar
On Tuesday a man attacked the artist Lars Vilks in connection with a seminar on art at Uppsala University.
The atmosphere was calm at the beginning, Uppsala Nya Tidning reports. When Vilks showed a movie with sexual content the atmosphere became tense.
“The man in the first row suddenly rushed towards me. He gave me a “Danish,” [dansk skalle, hitting someone on the head using your own head] and I hit the wall and dropped my glasses,” Vilks says to TT.
The Uppsala Nya Tidning photographer, who was on the scene, describes the situation as extremely tense.
According to Vilks the man belonged to a group that tried to disturb the seminar. Vilks was taken to safety after the assault.
“I’m not injured, just a bit bruised.”
The seminar was broadcast by Uppsala Nya Tidning on the net.
The group that the man belongs consists of Muslims, says Vilks.
TT: How do you know that they are Muslims?
“They shouted “Mohammed, Mohammed,” says Vilks
He says that the pandemonium was still going on at around 18:00. The seminar was about Vilks’ own art projects and the topic of art and freedom of speech.
“My seminar in Jönköping was cancelled before I could hold the session, and now it has happened here. I am being stopped by physical violence, and I think it’s problematic if a mob is in charge,” he says.
The police were watching the event. A police officer was assaulted during the pandemonium.
“A crowd rushed forward. When a policeman tried to stop them he was attacked. As of now, two persons are in custody,” says Tommy Karlsson, commanding officer of the police in Uppsala county.
Meanwhile, outside, the Muslims are showing the world the only two words they seem to learn at university:
