Swedish cartoonist Lars Vilks made blasphemous sketches of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) killed in a car accident and two policemen on 9 September.

 A 75 years old Swedish artist published a depiction of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in 2007 and stirred worldwide controversy. This action of him provoked the Muslims of the whole world. Al-Qaeda put a bounty on his head, and two persons tried to burn his house. He also survived another attack on him in Denmark.

After the publishing of blasphemous sketches, Vilks started receiving many death threats. That’s why he was provided with high-end security by the government for the last 14 years.

He was travelling in a police vehicle with two police officers when a car collided with a truck. After the collision with the heavy truck, the vehicle caught fire immediately.  Lars Vilks and both policemen died on the spot while the truck driver got severely injured and sent to the hospital.

The police is unable to find the reason for the accident, and police are investigating the facts. Swedish police stated on Monday, “This is a very tragic incident. It is now important to all of us that we do everything we can to investigate what happened and what caused the collision,” 

They also added, “Initially, there is nothing that points to anyone else being involved.”
