The Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs condemned the incident of burning a copy of the Holy Quran in Sweden by a Danish extremist.
And on Thursday, the leader of the Danish “Hardline Line” party Rasmus Paludan burned the Holy Quran in a Muslim-populated area in the city of Linkoping, southern Sweden, under police protection.
The ministry said in a statement, Monday, that it condemns in the strongest terms the attacks and provocations against Islam, Muslims, the Qur’an and places of worship in various parts of the world during the holy month of Ramadan.
And she added, “The recent vile attack on the Holy Qur’an in Sweden shows that the world has not learned the lessons from history, and that it is still reluctant to limit provocative racist and anti-Islam acts.”
And she added, “The world continues to openly ignore hate crimes under the pretext that they are committed under the guise of freedom of expression.”
She stressed that “Turkey will continue to combat this threat posed by the anti-Islam and racist mentality.”
The ministry called on all countries and international organizations to take the necessary measures against anti-Islam and racism.
She added that she is waiting for effective and deterrent steps to be taken quickly to confront this threat, and to bring those responsible to justice.
