Founder of Muslim Association Sues for Hate Speech
by Zoë Robert
Salmann Tamimi, founder of the Muslim Association of Iceland, and his lawyer, Helga Vala Helgadóttir, say it is important to make a stand against the hate speech which has recently been flaring up on the internet.
An article published on visir.is on Sunday with the heading 'Could start to build mosque after the weekend' sparked a lot of discussion. Some of the comments on the website were particularly harsh and were directed towards Salmann and Ibrahim Sverrir Agnarsson, chair of the association.
Salmann is bringing charges against those who made the comments on Vísir.
