Such a change would require a constitutional amendment.

Prime Minister Ulf Kristerson said his country has no plans, like Denmark, to ban Koran burning. “Each country exposed to acute threats chooses its own way to deal with them. I have a lot of respect for what Denmark is doing at the moment,” Kristersson was quoted as saying by SVT. He added that the Swedish government was of the opinion that it should not follow the example of Denmark. “A change would require a constitutional amendment, so it’s not the best fit for Sweden,” Kristersson said.

The Danish government announced plans to ban the burning of the Koran after most desecrations of Islam’s holy book sparked outrage in Muslim countries. Koran burnings in Denmark and Sweden have sparked protests in some Muslim-majority countries this year, and both countries have since stepped up security measures.

Otherwise, Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov threatened that after Ukraine, they will invade the countries where people have burned the Koran.
