However, the question remains, was the Sweden Riots justified?

Well, of course not. Rasmus has been previously imprisoned and punished for racism, inciting violence, and other charges. The migrant Muslims could have taken the course of law. Democracy gives one the right to have rights even though you are a migrant. However, they choose otherwise.

The protestors took the street to protest and resorted to violence. Burning the city which migrant-majority.

This would only propel the agenda of the Anti-Islam agenda of people like Rasmus and Dan Park. Violence can never be condoned in any form. Actions must be taken against people for incitement against an ethnic group. However, strong actions must be charged against the rioters as well.
