Ugly end to debate on free speech
The tone was fierce between stand-up comedian Omar Marzouk and artist Firoozeh Bazrafkan during a weekend debate on the DR2 Saturday night programme, Deadline.
Marzouk's contention that the choice of those threatened by the Islamic group Call to Islam to go underground was an act of cowardice raised Bazrafkan's hackles.
Marzouk had posted on Facebook that members of far right party Dansk Folkeparti were little more than a bunch of "cowards with big mouths". His post included a link to an article describing how DF member Tina Petersen has gone into hiding after she received death threats from Call to Islam and calling on her to "come back and fight".
