The fly in the ointment is the fact Krekar is being arrested for exactly what Mohamed (his prophet) condoned and demanded.

Krekar, an Iraqi Kurd whose real name is Najmuddin Faraj Ahmad, was charged for “inciting criminal offences” for the extreme statements, which caused uproar in Norway when the interview was aired on Wednesday.
“The cartoonist has become an infidel at war, and therefore it is permissible to kill him,” Krekar told the interviewer, arguing the attacks were justified under Islamic law.
“As he has trampled on our dignity, our principles and beliefs, so he must die. Anyone who does not respect 30 percent of the world’s population has no right to live.”
As a result he said, he saw the in January attack on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which left eleven dead, as something to be celebrated.
“When it comes to what happened in France, naturally I am happy that it happened,” he said.
Vegard Rødås, an inspector with the Oslo police, said that Krekar had in no way resisted arrest.
“Krekar was arrested outside his apartment without any drama,” he told NRK.
