Amman, Mar 25 (Petra)--The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates Saturday denounced the burning of a copy of the Holy Qur'an by extremists in Denmark's Copenhagen on Friday.
The ministry's spokesperson Sinan Majali, said the act is an inciting and racist one that provokes Muslims' feelings, especially in the holy month of Ramadan.
"Burning the Holy Qur'an is a serious act of hate and a manifestation of Islamophobia that incites violence and insults to religions and cannot be considered a form of freedom of expression at all," Majali said in a statement.
The statement urged Danish authorities to stop such irresponsible behavior and actions that fuel violence and hatred and threaten peaceful coexistence.
The Ministry renews its call to the international community to assume its responsibilities by confronting these acts and preventing them, working to spread and promote a culture of peace and acceptance of the other, raising awareness of the values of common respect, enriching the values of harmony and tolerance, and rejecting extremism, fanaticism and incitement to hatred as a collective responsibility that everyone must abide by.
