The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Turkey strongly condemned the case of burning a copy of the Qur’an by right-wing extremists in Sweden, reports Anadolu Agency (.).

A statement from the ministry strongly condemned attacks and provocations on Islam, Muslims, the Qur’an and places of worship recorded in various parts of the world during Ramadan, the Muslim month of fasting.

“As a last resort, vile attacks on our holy Qur’an in Sweden have shown that no lessons have been learned from the past, that there is still reluctance to prevent anti-Islamic and racist provocations and that hate crimes are openly tolerated under the pretext of freedom of expression. “, it is stated.

It is added that Turkiye will continue to fight threats posed by anti-Islamic and racist mentality:

“In this context, we call on all countries and international organizations to take the necessary measures against Islamophobia and racism, and we expect effective and dissuasive steps to be taken quickly against this threat and those responsible to be brought to justice.”

Rasmus Paludan, the Danish leader of the far-right Stram Kurs party, has been burning copies of the Qur’an in several Swedish cities in recent days with a large presence and police protection, sparking outrage from the local Muslim population.
