IRCICA CONDEMNS IN STRONGEST TERMS THE DESECRATION OF COPIES OF THE HOLY QUR’AN BY EXTREMISTS
Desecration of the Holy Qur’an in repeated extremist manifestations in Sweden and Denmark in recent months have been condemned by the global community. They are regarded as heinous and shameful acts inadmissible under the pretext of freedom of expression.
The burning and stomping on of copies of the Holy Qur’an in Copenhagen, Denmark and in Stockholm, Sweden in June and July are provocative anti-Islamic acts grievous to Muslims, which disturb people of conscience throughout the world.
IRCICA condemns in the strongest possible terms the desecration of the Holy Qur’an in any form or manner. These acts target not only the Muslim community but all of humanity by violating the universal norms of multicultural coexistence and inter-faith harmony.
