What is the Actual Truth About this Incident? : Fact

The truth is that these assertions are unfounded and fraudulent. Reports state that Norway’s police have denied any such incidence and are unaware of the incident. We visited Document, which published an article on this incident on 02/04/2024 with the headline “The rumors about Salwan Momika’s death in Norway are not true”. It added “The Police’s Immigration Unit is not aware that Salwan Momika has been found dead in Norway. Thus, the rumors buzzing internationally have been denied.”

@salwan_momika1 tweeted “The newspapers and news sites that published the news of my death in Norway are false and their goal is to intimidate everyone who doubts or criticizes Islam. Therefore, I say, your rumors and false media will not scare us. I am alive and will not surrender despite the injustice I was subjected to by the Norwegian authorities. Where I arrived, they arrested me immediately and stripped me of my phones. They prevented me from communicating with anyone, then they took me to court, where the court charged me with the following: “You are detained because you pose a threat to Norwegian national security.” The foolish old judge seemed fond of Islam, so I told him that neither your imprisonment nor your courts will frighten me. It seems that you are happy with Islam occupying your countries and raping your daughters. So the police took me outside the court and put me in a secret prison outside the supervision of human rights organizations and away from the media and the press. #SalwanMomika” on April 11, 2024.

Further, @salwan_momika1 tweeted “My friends, I’m not okay. I pay the price of freedom and the price of the word truth. The whole world is against me and Norway fired a bullet into the heart of freedom. #SalwanMomika” on April 11, 2024.
