Can you burn religious books in public spaces in other European countries?

-

  • France: The “public order” law prevents religious books from burning in public spaces.
  • Netherlands: Local legislation in big cities prohibits citizens from setting fires or burning things in public.
  • UK: National legislation prohibits acts that incite religious hatred. 
  • Germany, Austria, and Finland: There is a blasphemy act in place that makes it illegal to burn any religious symbols. 
  • Only in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark can you do it legally.
